Matthew Ramsdale has been appointed Head Chef at The Chester Grosvenor’s La Brasserie restaurant, replacing Gareth Jones.

Following two and a half years as Sous Chef at Simon Radley’s La Brasserie restaurant, Matt Ramsdale has been appointed Head Chef of the two AA rosette establishment.

Cited as a key driver of the La Brasserie concept, standards and innovation, Matt is set to continue developing the menu to incorporate innovative and seasonal dishes, utilising the abundance of high-quality, local suppliers.

Matt Ramsdale comments: “I’m very fortunate to have a lot of backing and support from Simon Radley and the hotel to explore and experiment with food. My plans for the future are to keep the standards as high as expected at La Brasserie, ensuring the menu is as fresh and seasonal as possible, using the best local produce. We’ve got some amazing suppliers in and around Chester and it would be a shame to not make the most if what is on our doorstep!

We have a new ‘Light Bites’ menu launching in the coming weeks; some beautiful classics paired with a couple of more modern, brasserie style plates. I’m also working on some new dishes to keep the A La Carte menu interesting and exciting.”

The relaunched menu includes the likes of mackerel fillet with romesco sauce stuffed sweetbite pepper, rocket and hazelnut pesto, fresh tomatoes, almonds, rocket and finished with a hazelnut and parmesan crisp.
