Pierre Koffmann To Open New Restaurant at The Berkeley


London is about to get so lucky. Culinary legend Chef Pierre Koffmann is set to make his return to London in June at The Berkeley Hotel. Koffmann’s new venture will open on the site of Gordon Ramsay’s Boxwood Café, which is to close shortly (Another swift kick in the crown jewels of the Ramsay empire) and this will be the first time since 2002 that Koffmann has had his own restaurant in London.

Fuelled by the success of Koffmann’s ‘Pop-up’ restaurant on the roof at Selfridges in October 2009, Koffmann has put his creative energies into, once again, starting a new restaurant – this time, with a more relaxed and informal approach to dining. Menu will be inspiration comes from the rustic country cooking of his home region of Gascony in France.

After the unprecedented level of write ups from the media and blogging world alike, Koffmann’s new venture will undoubtedly whip us all into yet another frenzy and ensure his restaurant is booked solid from the very first day of opening. I wonder if 6 months is all an icon like Koffmann will need to impress Michelin guide inspectors. Regardless, you already know in your heart-of-hearts that literally everything this man touches has the tendency to turn to gold. So we wait… patiently, until June for the birth of yet another big-named venture and with the likes of Heston Blumenthal and Daniel Boulud opening ventures just a stone’s throw away, Knightsbridge is set to become one of the hottest foodie spots in town, so watch this space.
