Outlaw’s at The Capital announces new head chef


Nathan Outlaw’s Michelin-starred London restaurant at The Capital Hotel, Knightsbridge, has announced the appointment of new head chef, Tom Brown.

Brown has been working with Outlaw since 2012 at his restaurant in the St Enodoc Hotel Rock and will now be taking his love of Cornish seafood to the capital.

The move is part of a restructure of the restaurant team, and will also see previous head chef Pete Biggs promoted to the new role of executive chef for Outlaw’s restaurant group as Brown replaces him.

Outlaw said: "I’m really happy to see Tom make the move to head chef at Outlaw’s at The Capital. His passion for cooking is amazing and I can’t wait to see him flourish in his new role in London."

Brown spent honing his skills at Rick Stein’s Seafood Bar and St Kew Inn near Bodmin before joining Nathan at St Enodoc where he was head chef for three years.

He cooked with Nathan at the 2015 St Moritz Gourmet Festival and appearances in the diary this year include participating at Hotelympia and Taste of London.

Outlaw’s at The Capital, which opened in October 2012, is Nathan Outlaw’s only restaurant outside Cornwall, and was awarded its first Michelin star in 2013. It has also won the Waitrose Good Food Guide award for ‘Best Value Set Lunch’ and featured on Masterchef in December 2014.

In 2015 The Capital won the award of ‘Best Culinary Hotel in The World’ at the World Boutique Hotel Awards.
