Jason Atherton is to open a Maze Grill next door, and a new Maze in Prague

It's going to be a busy year for Jason Atherton, Executive Chef of Gordon Ramsay Holdings' Maze in London's Mayfair. Atherton is to oversee the opening of a Maze Grill next door to Maze, and a Maze in Prague.

Atherton said the Grill will open in the site of The Cobalt Restaurant and Bar which, like Michelin-starred Maze, is in the London Marriott Grosvenor Square. Due to open in March 2008, the Maze Grill will be designed by United Designers. It will be a standalone restaurant with 70 covers, an open kitchen, butchery room and wood-fired grill, said Atherton. "It will be a high-end grill restaurant. Maze will be still our trendy brand, while at the Grill we'll be serving very light and modern food and we will have plenty of interaction with farmers.

There'll be some unique beef on the menu too."

Atherton said he was keen to open Maze Grill, which is part of the Marriott Grosvenor's major refurbishment, largely because of its proximity to Maze. "The reason I'm doing it is because I can do it very easily and I don't want to do anything that takes my focus away from Maze."

Further afield, the company also intends to open a Maze in the Prague Marriott. The kitchen will be headed up by Senior Sous Chef at Maze – Philip Carmichael.

It will open at the beginning of October with David Collins handling the design. The dinner menu will be similar to Maze in Mayfair with a tasting menu. However, during the day it will serve a "More general offering, somewhere in-between what we're doing at Maze and a very high-end European brasserie."
