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

Cornish born and bred, Tom has been working with Nathan since 2012 at his restaurant in the St Enodoc Hotel Rock and is excited to continue showcasing the best seafood that Cornwall has to offer at Outlaw’s at The Capital.

With Nathan restructuring his restaurant team, previous head chef Pete Biggs is promoted to the new role of Executive Chef for the Outlaw’s restaurant group and Tom replaces him at the Capital.

Nathan 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."

Tom spent time 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 3 years. Tom 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.

Tom will showcase an ever- changing selection of unique dishes using the best seasonal and sustainable seafood, predominantly from Cornwall and from fishermen he knows well. Dictated by the daily catch, menus change regularly and could include Crab Scotch Egg with Crab Sauce, Fennel & Dill or Brill with Jerusalem Artichoke, Oyster and Seaweed or to finish a Dark Chocolate Tart with Malted Milk Ice Cream and Orange Syrup.

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.
