Simon Rogan looks for opportunities in the South

Culinary maverick Simon Rogan has hinted he would like to open a new fine-dining restaurant in the South of England.

In an interview with Caterer, the chef-proprietor of the Michelin-starred L'Enclume in Cartmel, Cumbria, said he was frustrated more people had not eaten his food.

"I want more people to sample my food," he said. "It seems you get success and recognition a lot quicker in the South."

Rogan said he did not want to replicate L'Enclume, but that the style of food would be similar. He added that he favoured somewhere near London, but not in the capital itself.

He denied that a move would mean closing L'Enclume, adding that he was close to securing a deal to open a second restaurant in Cartmel. "We are certainly not looking to scale down in the area or turn our backs on it,"
he added.
