So this is a bit of a surprise. Simon Rogan will no longer be running the restaurant at Claridges at the end of the month.
In a press release today Simon said; “It’s been a pleasure working with Claridge’s for a successful and enjoyable three years, and as the time has come to move on, we do so with excitement for the future and grateful for our time at Fera.”
Fera at Claridges will actually continue, but will be run by Rogan's protégé Head Chef Matt Starling.
As for Rogan he's decided to focus back on his own restaurant group and look for a new location for his pop-up Roganic, which he ran in Marylebone for two years.
