The Lecture Room & Library At Sketch London Awarded 3 Michelin Stars
The Lecture Room & Library at Sketch in London earns three Michelin stars at the recent launch of the 2020 guide for Great Britain and Ireland. A marvelous feat for a spectacular restaurant!
Overseen by French chef Pierre Gagniere, the kitchen at the Lecture Room & Library is run on a daily basis by head chef Johannes Nuding. It becomes the fifth restaurant in the UK, alongside Alain Ducasse at the Dorchester and Restaurant Gordon Ramsay in London, and the Fat Duck and Waterside Inn in Bray, Berkshire, to hold the coveted accolade.
Situated an iconic Mayfair dining destination the sumptuous, eccentric restaurant has been open for 16 years. It earned its first star in 2005 and its second star in 2012.
Nuding was in shock on hearing the news of the third star. He said the award was down to “hard work, a great team and working with the best – Pierre Gagnaire – for many years. For the team it will mean a lot. I push them every day. Now they see if you push it really pays off one day and you can do what you want if you just believe in it and work hard.”
Mourad Mazouz, the owner of Sketch, was equally surprised and said he did not know what the implication of three stars would be. “It’s a long journey from a small village in Algeria, where I come from. It is Johannes especially and Pierre who deserve the stars – they are really the ones who make all the details in the plate. Pierre is an unbelievable genius.”
The 2020 guide features a total of 1,464 restaurants, five of which now hold three stars, 23 two stars and 159 one star.
