Former Racine chef Henry Harris on his plans for The Truscott Arms

The former chef-patron of one of London’s most sorely missed French restaurants – Racine in West London – is to oversee the return of The Truscott Arms in Maida Vale. Harris has been employed by the (as yet unnamed) company behind the relaunch as chef director and will soon take control of a number of other London pubs. The Truscott Arms was forced to close last year
because of a rent hike, and was purchased by private equity company Ducalian Capital early this year. The pub, which was previously famed for its Sunday lunches, is expected to open in October.
