Biography

Born in Bordeaux, Bruno Loubet first came to the UK in 1982 to work for Pierre Koffmann at La Tante Claire. Having been awarded the 1985 Good Food Guide's Young Chef of the Year, he joined Raymond Blanc in Oxford as Head Chef at the two Michelin-starred Manoir aux Quat'Saisons. He returned to London as Head Chef at the Four Seasons, Inn on the Park, where he earned a Michelin star within the year, before opening Bistrot Bruno in Soho (The Times Restaurant of the Year 1993). Following the success of Bistrot Bruno, he opened L'Odeon in 1995 (The Times Restaurant of the Year 1996).

In 2001 Bruno moved with his young family to Brisbane, Australia. He returned to London in summer 2009, helping Pierre Koffmann run his near legendary pop-up restaurant on the roof of Selfridges, before opening Bistrot Bruno Loubet at The Zetter Hotel in February 2010, earning high praise from critics and a stampede of visitors.

Likewise with his most recent restaurant, Grain Store, which opened in the summer of 2013 and was met with much fanfare and reviews from each of the major broadsheets: "the Grain Store is a triumph of a great chef thinking about what the London scene needs, and delivering it," wrote Lisa Markwell in The Independent.

Unlike Bistrot Bruno, Grain Store has a vegetarian focus and meat almost seems like an afterthought in dishes that are eclectic, modern and adventurous, proving Loubet to be one of the most well-rounded chefs out there.
