The fine dining restaurant at The Chester Grosvenor is celebrating 25 years at the top of the dining game.
‘Simon Radley at The Chester Grosvenor’ has been awarded a Michelin star for the 25th year in a row.
The award winning restaurant is part of an elite group of only four other English restaurants to ever have been awarded one or more Michelin stars consecutively for so many years, and sits amongst the company of industry greats like Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons and Le Gavroche.
Executive chef Simon Radley said: “Twenty five years is an important landmark for us. The team and I were delighted to receive the news this morning. It’s a great reward for all the hard work we’ve put in over the years.”
Simon is a hands-on chef who is involved in the day to day running of both ‘Simon Radley at The Chester Grosvenor’ and the hotel’s ‘La Brasserie’ restaurants.
Simon Radley joined the team at The Chester Grosvenor in 1986 and apart from a few years gaining experience in London and the Far East has been at the helm of the operation for over 20 years.
He handpicks suppliers, mentors young up and coming chefs through the Simon Radley Kitchen Academy and is an integral part of the hotel’s senior management team.
Managing director Jonathan Slater said:“This is a fitting tribute to Simon Radley and his superb teams both in the kitchen and on the restaurant floor. It is due to Simon’s loyalty to our wonderful hotel, his consistent leadership and his creative vision that has kept us our star for so many years.”
