Tom Aikens is one of the UK’s most acclaimed and inspirational British chefs. With a father working in the wine industry and a childhood mostly spent gardening and cooking with his mother, Tom put food and the use of the finest ingredients at the centre of his life from a very early age. His remarkable career took him to David Cavalier’s in Battersea, Pierre Koffmann’s La Tante Claire, Joel Robuchon in Paris, Gerard Boyere’s in Riems and Pied-à-Terre to name a few. It was at the latter that Tom became the youngest British chef ever to be awarded two Michelin stars, aged just 26. Tom remained at Pied-à-Terre for five years, then going on to open his immensely successful eponymous restaurant, Tom Aikens (2003—2014), which won a Michelin star and rising 2 star in 2009.
Tom has succesfully launched restaurant concepts in the Middle East in Dubai called Pots Pans & Boards as well as 3 restaurant within the Edition Hotel in Abu Dhabi. The most recent addition to Tom’s portfolio is Muse, a cosy 25-seater renovated mews house in Belgravia. Muse provides a unique and intimate dining journey, offering each and every guest a kitchen table experience from either the kitchen counter or table side. The culmination of many years spent searching for the perfect location, Tom has finally found his new home. Muse is set to be the pinnacle of Tom’s career thus far, where the food, interiors and service comes together to provide a magical and memorable atmosphere for all who dine there.
