La Noisette is a presently closed restaurant site, located at 164 Sloane Street in London, England.

History[edit]

Opened in the mid-1990s as private members club Monte’s, the kitchen was operated by a series of star chefs including multi-Michelin-starred chef Alain Ducasse, and in 2000 Jamie Oliver was appointed as chef-consultant, overseeing head chef Ben O’Donoghue.[2]

In 2005, Gordon Ramsay Holdings approached Ian Pengelley, who opened Pengelley's on the site in 2005, which closed after a year.[3] In 2007, GRH reopened the site as La Noisette, with chef patron Bjorn van der Horst in charge. Under his charge, the restaurant held a one star in the Michelin Guide.[1]

Future[edit]

After closing in March 2009 as a restaurant,[2] in light of the loss of private-dining capacity while the Savoy Hotel was closed due to refurbishment, GRH proposed to refurbish the site as a private dining venue.
