MasterChef and Roux Scholarship finalist to oversee kitchen at new Chelsea restaurant

Olivia Burt, a finalist of the Roux Scholarship and MasterChef: The Professionals competitions last year and former Claridge's sous chef, will be overseeing the kitchen as head chef at Stanley's, a new restaurant opening in London's Chelsea tomorrow.

The first restaurant from Hugh Stanley, of the Stanley horse breeder family and former manager of the Sydney Arms in Chelsea, the 102-cover venue has a large outdoor courtyard, orangery-style dining area and private dining room.

Located at 151 Sydney Street, guests will enter through a floral archway flanked by olive trees and tiered shrub planting into the flagstone courtyard area.

The courtyard can sit 60 covers, while the dining room can sit 30 and houses a contemporary art collection with pieces from Catherine Miller's gallery on Hollywood road. The 12-cover private dining room features floor-to-ceiling wooden panelling with shelves of antiques.

Stanley said: "I am so excited to be launching Stanley's a place for guests to come eat, drink and relax. It's a unique space in Chelsea with a large outside courtyard, cosy interiors alongside a great food and drink offering. Menu-wise we've tried to source everything from the UK which is very important to me."
