Andy McFadden, was born in Ireland and from a young age was very passionate about great food. He endeavoured to make a career out of this passion and quickly stood out amongst his peers whilst studying.
Working his way through some of the best restaurants in Ireland and on the continent, he gained a wealth of knowledge and skills that are still with him to this day.Inevitably his culinary trail landed him in London, where he took up the position of chef de partie under head chef at the time, Shane Osborn. It was there at sister restaurant, Michelin starred Pied à Terre that Andy refined his cooking skills and gained a renewed appreciation and understanding of ingredients.
In keeping with the Pied tradition which sees head chefs nurture and mentor rising stars in the industry with the intention of one day passing on the culinary baton, Andy was invited to take up the top position at L’Autre Pied in 2007. From October 2015, Andy is back at Pied à Terre, this time as Head Chef.
Michelin starred Pied a Terre is located in Fitzrovia, the heart of the West End. Since opening its doors in 1991, the restaurant has won some of the highest accolades possible and continues to impress diners with beautifully crafted culinary treats and Michelin star service. The dining room is simplistic elegance with intimate low lighting and touches of contemporary artwork subtly placed. Expect exceptional gourmet food and exquisitely planned dishes, Pied a Terre continues to thrive supported by loyal food lovers.
