The Berkeley hotel has announced it will part company with Gordon Ramsay Holdings later this year to work directly with Marcus Wareing.
Wareing, who has been running the hotel`s fine dining restaurant Petrus for Ramsay since 2003, will take over the lease of the restaurant when the existing contract expires on September 19.
The move marks the end of a 15-year working relationship between Wareing and Ramsay. Wareing, whose work at Petrus has won him two Michelin stars, originally opened the restaurant for the celebrity chef in St James` in 1999 before it moved to the Berkeley in 2003.
Klaus Kabelitz, General Manager of The Berkeley said: "The decision to continue to work with Marcus Wareing allows us to offer our guests a seamless transition so that they can continue to enjoy his passionate and creative cooking that they have come to love so much over the years. “
It has not yet been confirmed what name the restaurant under Wareing will be called, but it is unlikely to remain Petrus as the name belongs to Gordon Ramsay Holdings.
