Phil Howard

Phil appeared on Great British Menu 2012, winning the fish course round with his dish of Cornish mackerel with oysters, mussels, winkles and samphire. He also released his first cookbook in 2012, a two-volume tome of recipes from The Square including dishes like lasagne of crab with a cappuccino of shellfish and a Champagne foam and braised veal cheek with hand-rolled macaroni, cauliflower and truffle.

Phil is a co-proprietor for Michelin-starred establishments Kitchen W8 and The Ledbury. In 2011, he picked up a Catey Award for Restaurateur of the year.

In 2016, he sold The Square and now focuses entirely on Kitchen W8 and his latest restaurant, Elystan Street, which offers a more relaxed menu in a casual setting. A year later, Elystan Street was awarded a Michelin star.
