General Manager

Sandro Alessandrini, General Manager of Launceston Place, embarked on his career into the luxury restaurant business after finishing his studies in Italy in 2007. Having started with D&D London through our RISE development program in 2009, his career has taken him to some of London’s top restaurants before bringing him back to us, as enthusiastic and driven as when we last worked together.

Before joining Launceston Place, Sandro worked at Maze and Maze Grill Mayfair, part of the Gordon Ramsay Group, where he assisted in the smooth running of a venue comprising of two restaurants, private rooms and room service for the hotel.  Between 2014 and 2015 he worked as  Restaurant Manager at The Grill at The Dorchester, where he oversaw the opening of the newly refurbished restaurant under the guidance of iconic Alain Ducasse.

Finally, at Koffmann’s at The Berkeley, where he was the Restaurant Manager between 2012 and 2014, Sandro and our Head Chef Ben Murphy met, proving to be  a successful duo at delivering unforgettable experiences. We are delighted to bring the two back together, ensuring our guests remain delighted at every moment of their dining experience.
