The Capital Hotel in Knightsbridge has appointed Adam Simmonds as executive chef, bringing the role back in house after six years working with a consultant.
The five-star, 49-bedroom luxury hotel, which is owned and operated by Warwick Hotels and Resorts, has appointed Simmonds to head up the hotel’s F&B operation, who joins three months after leaving his position at the new Belmond Cadogan.
Simmonds worked as executive chef under chef-patron Adam Handling at the first London property from Belmond for only five months.
Belmond Cadogan opened in February following a multi-million pound renovation project.
Now in his new role at The Capital, Simmonds will work to ‘ensure the hotel’s restaurant maintains its position as one of the finest dining venues in London’.
He has twice been recognised by Michelin, having been awarded a star at Ynyshir Hall in Wales in 2006 and Danesfield House in Marlow 2010.
Both stars were retained throughout his tenure at each establishment.
His vision for the menu is a balance of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes – wholly in line with The Capital’s legacy of providing a dining experience beyond expectation.
The Capital and The Levin became the first London establishments in the Warwick Hotels and Resorts portfolio when they were acquired from hotelier David Levin in 2017.
