John Burton-Race Resigns From the Richardson Hotel Group

Renowned celebrity and former 2 star Michelin chef, John Burton-Race, is looking for his next venture within the catering industry, and has recently resigned from his role as Group Executive Head Chef Consultant at the Richardson Hotel Group.

Only twenty months after the Richardson Hotel Group reinvented the former ‘The Grosvenor’ hotel into the ‘John Burton-Race Restaurant with Rooms’ – including a large scale refurbishment and re-branding, Burton-Race has resigned from his position and is now looking for new opportunities, within the trade globally.

Burton-Race, who has held 2 Michelin stars (Quat’Saisons, L’Ortolan, and The New Angel), and has 35 years of professional chef experience, including running, opening, and training in a multitude of restaurants, has made this decision in order to find his next executive role. Burton-Race has commented,

“I am saddened that I have had to make the decision to leave the group, but I am excited about finding my next venture and look forward to seeing what the future holds for me. I have shown that I can rebuild an average restaurant into a fine dining establishment within a short space of time- if I am given the opportunity and the backing’’

The John Burton-Race Restaurant with Rooms will now need to be re-branded without him, as John no longer has any involvement with the Richardson Hotel Group.
