Arnaud has had quite a career working with some of the very top chefs: Pierre Koffmann, Gordon Ramsay, Gary Rhodes and Jason Atherton to name just a few.

Half French, half English, Arnaud grew up in Devon which inspired him in his passion for quality, fresh produce especially seafood, game, poultry. After completing catering college he spent the next 10 years learning his trade in some of the great kitchens of London and the south of France culminating in the position of Head Chef at Maze Grill.

Arnaud joined Searcys in 2009 as Executive Chef of the prestigious Royal Opera House where he oversaw the three restaurants as well as the large-scale banquets and awards dinners. He then went on to head-up the kitchens at Searcys at The Gherkin. This private members club includes an award winning restaurant which has established itself under Arnaud’s influence as one of the most sought-after tables in London.

Arnaud has devised the concept of the Sixtyone Restaurant in partnership with his protégé, Head Chef Killian Lynch. The food at Sixtyone is all about quality and style but in a relaxed setting.
