Adam Handling Chelsea to close

The Adam Handling Restaurant Group together with The Cadogan, A Belmond Hotel have announced the Group’s consultancy contract at the Cadogan Hotel in Chelsea will come to an end in October 2021. This includes the highly-acclaimed Adam Handling Chelsea restaurant, which opened at the beginning of 2019. 

This mutual agreement will allow Adam Handling to focus on his Group’s expansion across the UK at an exciting time. The Cadogan will be relaunching a new dining experience later this year.

Adam Handling, Chef/Owner of the Adam Handling Restaurant Group commented, “As I said at the end of lockdown, I really want to focus on our flagship restaurant in Covent Garden, Frog by Adam Handling and, with the launch of The Loch & The Tyne in May in Old Windsor, and the upcoming opening of Ugly Butterfly at Carbis Bay in August, we have so much to get our teeth into. 

“Working with the Cadogan Estate and Belmond for the past three years has been a great experience and we wish the team every success with the new operation when it opens later this year.” 

Xavier Lablaude, General Manager at The Cadogan, said, “We would like to thank Adam Handling for his work in establishing the restaurant and the food and beverage concept within The Cadogan Hotel. 

"Since opening in March 2019 his hard work and creative flair has helped to establish The Cadogan as a premier destination within the heart of Chelsea. We plan to build on the excellent work of Adam to offer visitors and locals alike a signature Belmond welcome, combining understated elegance with local charm. We wish him all the best with his new projects.” 

Restaurant Adam Handling Chelsea will continue to operate as normal until 14th October this year. More details on the new restaurant at The Cadogan will be announced in due course.
