Phil Howard has received one of the Michelin Guide’s most prestigious awards in the 2022 Michelin Guide.

The Chef Mentor award pays tribute to the influence that Phil’s cooking has had on the next generation of chefs, citing the number of current Michelin starred chefs who started their careers working for Phil at his Mayfair restaurant The Square.

In their award citation Michelin say “A quick glance at some of the chefs who passed through his kitchen – Brett Graham, Gary Foulkes, Mark Kempson and Jun Tanaka to name a few – shows the important role Phil played in forging the careers of other successful chefs.

“The influence that he exerted can still be seen today in any number of restaurants run by these talented graduates.”
