One of the most hotly anticipated openings of the year will be the debut solo venture of Clare Smyth, former chef patron at 3 Michelin-starred Restaurant Gordon Ramsay on Royal Hospital Road in Chelsea.

Smyth will go it alone this year, having worked for Ramsay for over a decade and acquiring a stake in his eponymous site.

News emerged this week that she has secured an as yet unnamed site at Kensington Park Road in Notting Hill, which was home to Prue Leith’s eponymous restaurant Leiths for 26 years. The opening is slated for early summer and details of the dishes are being kept under wraps.
