Seafood restaurant group Wright Brothers has appointed Henry Harris to the new role of chef and beverage director.
In his new role, Harris will be responsible for food, drink and service in Wright Brothers’ four restaurants, and also oversee product development for the company’s online range.
Harris – who is the former owner of London based restaurant Racine which closed in 2015 – will also be an ambassador for Wright Brothers’ wholesale business.
According to the group, the appointment “heralds a new Wright Brothers era” as it plans to introduce “new British steaks, meats and signature seafood dishes” to its restaurants.
In his new position, Harris will put his spin on Wright Brothers seafood classics and add some new dishes to the menu. These will be inspired by his “wealth of experience from Harvey Nichols, Harcourt Inns, Racine and Bibendum”.
Ben Wright, co-founder of Wright Brothers said: “We were extremely proud to have served Henry at Racine and even prouder today to be working with such an experienced and respected chef on this exciting new chapter for Wright Brothers.
“Henry shares our passion and vision for great food, drink and hospitality, as well as our values when it comes to nurturing talent and inspiring teams.”
Harris added: “After almost 20 years as a customer and friend of Wright Brothers I’m excited to be working with Ben, Robin and the teams in the dining rooms and kitchens to start a new chapter for Wright Brothers.”
