Bites: Angela Hartnett finds a new home
Sunday 23 December 2007
Details of Angela Hartnett's new home have finally emerged. The industry rumour mill has been in overdrive since September, when it was first confirmed that Hartnett would not be returning to run her Michelin-starred signature restaurant at The Connaught, when the famous Mayfair hotel, which closed for refurbishment at the end of March, reopened at the end of the year.
Hartnett's new Italian, due to open at the end of May next year, is to be called Murano, after the decorative Venetian glass, and will also be in Mayfair, occupying the ground floor of 20-22 Queen Street, the site having previously housed upmarket Chinese Zen Central, with the Michelin-starred Indian Tamarind located in the basement.
Meanwhile, there's bad news at The Connaught, which, though it has just reopened, is still without a new star chef, its deal to bring in Alain Passard (pictured) from L'Arpge in Paris apparently having fallen through.
