Robert Reid, who trained under Joël Robuchon and took over for Marco Pierre White at the three-Michelin-starred Oak Room in London when the chef retired in 1999, will be the chef at Keith McNally’s Balthazar when it opens next month, Caterer and Hotelkeeper reports. Reid will join pastry chef Regis Beauregard, formerly of the Ritz, and maître d’ Byron Lang, who was last at the Savoy Grill. [CatererSearch, Earlier]
