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.

Most recently, Sandro worked for Maze and Maze Grill Mayfair, part of the Gordon Ramsay Group, where he assisted in the smooth running of a venue comprised of dining options varying from private rooms to room service.  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, managing Koffmann’s at The Berkeley in 2013 and 2014, Sandro worked with Launceston Place’s current Head Chef Ben Murphy, proving to be  a successful team at delivering unforgettable service both in the kitchen and front of house. We are delighted to bring the two back together, ensuring our guests remain delighted at every moment of their dining experience.
