Allan Pickett is Chef Patron of new Fitzrovia restaurant Piquet which is already proving a hit with critics (receiving four stars from Fay Maschler and five stars from Time Out).
Over the years, he has worked with many high calibre chefs including the likes of Roger Naylor, Chris and Jeff Galvin and Nico Ladenis. Allan’s primary head chef position was working for Marco Pierre White at the Michelin-starred L’escargot, then on to Aurora at the Great Eastern Hotel, overseeing the fine dining restaurant. He has also enjoyed great success working within the D&D London Group, firstly as head chef at Orrery, where he retained the Michelin star.
He joined the Galvin brothers at Galvin Bistro de Luxe and then went on to The Aviator Hotel in Farnborough, where he worked with the inspirational Ken McCulloch, returning to D&D and joining Plateau restaurant and grill as head chef in May 2010 and saw it go from strength to strength before leaving to open Piquet.
