Description du poste
Two Michelin stars, 180 covers a night. Dinner by Heston Blumenthal runs like a well-oiled machine, and we’re looking for an Executive Chef who can keep pace.
This isn’t just a chance to head up one of London’s busiest two-starred restaurants; it’s a chance to learn the history of British cuisine, from an eighteenth-century salamagundy to salmon cured with Earl Grey.
Of course, the standards of service expected at Dinner by Heston Blumenthal are only possible with a certain level of regimentation. But with regiments come ranks, and we believe in moving up them.
After all, our hotels are international, and a fine stay means fine dining all over the world, from Tokyo to Tapei.
About the role
As Executive Chef of Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, you will manage and direct the team on a daily basis to ensure the culinary operation of the restaurant delivers consistent excellence, exceeding industry norms to always be ahead of the market and be recognised through awards and accolades accordingly. You will be expected to always act responsibly and ensure others are brand ambassadors for Mandarin Oriental, Heston Blumenthal and the Fat Duck Group. It is key to drive our vision of kind and generous service, treating both guests and colleagues in a respectful manner; treasuring our colleagues as much as our delightful guests.
About the hotel
Dinner is a collaboration between two iconic names: Heston Blumenthal and Mandarin Oriental. When you set foot through these doors, you feel the spirit of the city infusing every floor. The park’s green vastness rolls beyond bedroom windows. Renowned guests frequent the hotels’ bars and restaurants.
It’s another world – a world of oriental luxury and the most attentive service. A world that’s all about our guests.
It’s a world that’s been reinvented and reimagined to move with the times. With a heart of London’s heritage and an eye to the future, we use our own sense of history to set new standards – through kind and generous service.
