Town Hall Hotel, London, has announced Lee Westcott as executive chef of its new restaurant, which is set to launch in April. Lee will also oversee the menu in Corner Room and the bar, as well as the conference and banqueting menus.
Lee – who is currently executive chef of Jason Atherton’s 22Ships and Ham & Sherry in Hong Kong – will return to London to open his first solo restaurant, backed by Jason Atherton and Peng Loh, in the previous site of Viajante.
Lee’s vast experience has seen him spend over four years working alongside Michelin-starred chef Tom Aikens, heading up the kitchen at his Chelsea restaurant. Prior to that, Lee completed stints at the three-Michelin-star Per Se in New York; alongside Rene Redzepi at Noma; and with Gordon Ramsey at Claridges.
