New executive chef for Planet Hollywood restaurant

American-themed restaurant Planet Hollywood has appointed Andy Young as its new executive head chef.

Young joins the London Haymarket restaurant after nearly thirty years' at Browns, with time spent at the Brighton and then Mayfair, Old Jewry and Covent Garden branches.

The Hollywood-inspired venue has four themed dining areas, a cocktail bar and DJ music, and serves classic dishes such as burgers and steaks, with drinks such as milkshakes.

Health-conscious Young, whose wife is a personal trainer, will maintain the current menu but also add in some salads, fish dishes and other lighter options.

Speaking of his new role, Young said: "I could not be happier, Planet Hollywood is a flamboyant, international brand, and I'm part of a dynamic, close-knit team. I'm very proud to work with such enthusiasm and talent; we're all passionate about creating the best experience for our guests."

Planet Hollywood focuses on its connections to the Los Angeles home of cinema, and showcases film and television memorabilia, such as Halle Berry's orange bikini from Bold movie Die Another Day, and David Hasselhoff's red shorts from beach television series Baywatch.
