Jeremy Lee leaves Blueprint Café for Quo Vadis

Jeremy Lee has joined Quo Vadis in Soho that will close for refurbishment over Christmas

Jeremy Lee is to leave London’s Blueprint Café after 16 years to join Sam and Eddie Hart’s Quo Vadis.

The chef, who has been at the Shad Thames-based restaurant since 1995, is taking charge of the kitchen at the historic Soho restaurant from next year.

His move will coincide with a number of changes at the restaurant, with Quo Vadis closing for refurbishment from December 24. It is due to reopen in the second week of January with a new menu as well as a new look.

Lee, who has previously worked with Simon Hopkinson at Bibendum and with Alastair Little at his Frith Street restaurant, has won a host of plaudits for his modern European food at D&D owned Blueprint Café.

Quo Vadis was bought by the Hart brothers in 2008 with Jean Philippe Patruno as head chef. Patruno has left the restaurant.
