Caractere Emily Roux of the famous Roux family - three generations of world class chefs at the top of their game - and her husband and chef Diego Ferrari, currently head chef at Le Gavroche, have their first restaurant together in Caractere. It's "the manifestation of everything we love" says Diego of the Notting Hill restaurant which brings together Emily's Classic French fine dining background, her love of Italian food and Italian-born Diego's heritage. The two met when they both worked at Alain Ducasse's three Michelin starred restaurant, Le Louis XV, in Monaco and have been wanting to open a restaurant together for years. This is the realisation of that dream. The food is the kind, "we love to cook and love to eat" says Emily. Each season the menu changes, supplemented by daily specials, and the wine list offers both French and Italian varieties, predominantly by smaller winemakers.
