FORMER Castle Terrace head chef and restaurant manager Roberta Hall and Shaun McCarron are set to open their first restaurant this summer, The Little Chartroom, on Albert Place.
Set to launch mid-June The Little Chartroom will be a neighbourhood-style bistro with chef Roberta in the kitchen and Shaun managing front of house.
Roberta spent three years working at Michelin starred The Kitchin before assisting mentor Dominic Jack in the opening of Castle Terrace, where she worked for six years and where she went on to become head chef.
During her time at Castle Terrace, she met Shaun, who joined as a commis waiter, working up into the role of restaurant manager.
Serving French British style cuisine, The Little Chartroom’s food will be simple and seasonal with the level of work and attention to detail that comes as standard from a classically trained chef and which will elevate it above your standard bistro fare.
Named The Little Chartroom after Roberta’s love of sailing, their designers, up and coming duo Studio Niro, commissioned pieces by Roberta’s mum who has created bespoke artworks from old shipping charts for the bistro, which will be serving lunch and dinner from Wednesday to Sunday and brunch at the weekend.
The bijou 18 cover dining room will boast brass hardware and rich marine blues giving a nod to a traditional sailing aesthetic while also ensuring a relaxed and welcoming experience for guests.
