DRIES VAN NOTEN
Located on the top floor of Bristol’s boutique store, with commanding views of Quakers Friars, the Restaurant is the perfect place to enjoy a light lunch, an indulgent afternoon tea or a sumptuous dinner.
Executive Chef Louise McCrimmon and her team have won a host of top honours over the years, including Chef of the Year in the Bristol Good Food Awards, an AA Notable Wine List Award and two coveted AA Rosettes.
Access to the Restaurant after store hours is via the express lift situated at the Penn Street entrance.
Louise McCrimmon trained at Leiths School of Food and Wine, where she learnt the classic techniques that are the backbone of her cooking today. After cooking her way around Burgundy in France, she settled in Yorkshire, where she joined Harvey Nichols as Chef de Partie. Louise worked her way up through the ranks in the Fourth Floor Restaurant, Leeds - our first store outside London – and became Head Chef of the Second Floor Restaurant at our Bristol store in 2008, where she has really stamped her identity. Louise’s cooking is known for its lightness of touch and well-defined flavours. Her food has real character, combined with a commitment to seasonality and well-sourced raw ingredients.
