Marcus Wareing Restaurants has announced Chantelle Nicholson as chef-patron of Tredwell’s, the group’s contemporary British restaurant in the heart of London’s Covent Garden.

Chantelle will continue in her role as Group Operations Director for Marcus Wareing Restaurants alongside her new role as chef-patron of Tredwell’s. On the announcement Marcus Wareing Restaurants referred to Chantelle as being ‘the driving force behind the launch of Tredwell’s’.

Chantelle will continue to focus on using British seasonal ingredients. Typical dishes will include Scottish scallops with buttermilk, lime and green chilli salsa and Dorset turbot with caramelised cauliflower, fennel pollen and samphire. Chantelle will also be implementing an exciting new bar offering and focus on developing live music and private event opportunities at Tredwell’s.

On the news, Marcus Wareing said: “Chantelle came to me as a young dynamic individual who wanted to make her mark on this amazing industry we work in. Her ambitions have always been quiet but she is incredibly driven. Chantelle is the consummate professional, and she is a very very talented Chef. An incredible eye for detail, she is also an astute business woman and always pushing herself to the next level. I am delighted to see Chantelle take on the role of chef-patron of Tredwell’s and I look forward to continuing to work closely with her to further enhance the Tredwell’s offering.”

The company also said ‘Chantelle has worked tirelessly to establish the restaurant as a key London hotspot’ since it’s launch in September 2014. In October 2015 Tredwell’s won ‘Best new restaurant – London’ at the 2015/16 AA Hospitality Awards and Chantelle has also been shortlisted for Manager of the Year at the 2016 Cateys Awards.

Chantelle said: “I am totally delighted to be taking on the role of chef-patron of Tredwell’s. Having being so involved in every step of Tredwell’s so far, it already feels like an extension of me and I am hugely excited about its future and our plans to ensure its lasting legacy for London’s West End. I also want to use this opportunity to shine a positive light on the industry and show what an exciting and rewarding career path it offers to all. I really want to use my experience to inspire young chefs and female chefs in particular, to nurture them and help develop them into the leading stars of tomorrow.”

Originally founded in 2008, Marcus Wareing Restaurants now includes the 2 Michelin star Marcus at The Berkeley hotel in Knightsbridge; elegant British dining within the grand surrounds of St Pancras Renaissance Hotel at The Gilbert Scott; and Tredwell’s.
