Meet the Team at Bread Street Kitchen

Executive Head Chef - Erion Karaj

In 1999 Erion moved from Albania to London, where he worked in several top French and Italian restaurants. In early 2007 he joined Gordon Ramsay at Boxwood Café, moving quickly up the ranks to Senior Sous Chef. He then worked at both Plane Food and the Savoy Grill before being appointed Head Chef at Bread Street Kitchen, which opened in September 2011.

head chef - paul shearing

Paul has a wealth of experience gleaned from some of the capital’s best restaurant. Prior to joining Gordon Ramsay Group, he was Head Chef at Village East, a restaurant heralded as bringing the food-scene to Bermondsey. Other positions include Head Chef at boutique property One Aldwych and Senior Sous Chef at Bibendum.

Comprising a restaurant and bar with 220 covers, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, Bread Street Kitchen is a challenge for any chef. However Paul is confident that by drawing on his wealth of knowledge gained in his previous roles, he will continue to see that Bread Street Kitchen rises from height to height.

General Manager - Vincent Derdar

Dedicated and passionate about the hospitality and catering industry, Vincent Derdar brings with him a wealth of knowledge to his role as General Manager. Having earned his stripes at restaurants and hotels across the world, including The Boundary in East London, Rhodes 44 in Abu-Dhabi as well as Michelin starred Rhodes 24, Vincent is certainly up to the challenge.

At Bread Street Kitchen, Vincent has taken on the managerial role, from welcoming customers through the door to managing the front-of-house team. Bread Street Kitchen – which has also recently been exported to Hong Kong and serves as inspiration for the newly opened Heddon Street Kitchen – is a restaurant with a reputation that Vincent will ensure continues to shine.
