And it's also been confirmed that Richard Neat will return in 2016 to Pied a Terre to cook for one week only. wine-graphics-2001_1018648aOwner David Moore told The Staff Canteen that next year to celebrate 25 years of Pied a Terre, the original chef, who achieved two stars at the restaurant, Richard Neat, will be cooking for one week only back at the restaurant. David said: "The dates are to be announced but it will be an amazing week. It's really exciting to have him come back." On new L'Autre Pied head chef, Graham, David said: "Graham was thrilled to rejoin the Pied family and we are very excited! He has a bundle of energy and he's a talented chef  who has come back with some great skills having been in Hong Kong for two years - which we are excited to tap into!" Originally from the London area Graham has spent the last 13 years working in some of the best restaurants around the country. Starting his career at 18  as an apprentice to Gordon Ramsay and Mark Sargeant he then went to on to work at several other Michelin-starred restaurants ending up at the then two Michelin-starred Pied a Terre in Fitzrovia. Graham then went on to become the senior sous chef under Shane Osborn before taking the step to move to Hong Kong to launch a new concept in collaboration with Alan Yau called St Betty. He returned to the UK a year ago and joins L'Autre Pied from the Chancery.David_Avatar "We are going to see lots of changes at  L'Autre Pied in the next year," explained David. "Graham really wants to get a handle on the food, create his own style and take the restaurant into the phase." He added: "Graham was an obvious choice and stands firmly with the Pied traditions of promoting the team from within - so although he wasn't with us at the time he had worked for us for three years. "Watch this space because we have some exciting ideas for the new year. The London restaurant scene has changed so much in the last two years and if you are not moving forward you are moving backwards."
