David Moore is a familiar figure in the hospitality industry, not only as a highly successful independent restaurateur, owning and managing Pied à Terre and L’Autre Pied, but also as a result of the innovative ventures he undertakes within his role. David recently opened his first pop-up restaurant Pieds Nus in London which has welcomed a fantastic response from both diners and critics.
David’s career began at the highly regarded ‘The Box Tree’ in Ilkley before moving to take the position as a waiter under Raymond Blanc at Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons. Here he worked his way through the ranks before finally opening Pied à Terre in 1991 with the backing of Blanc, with whom he again collaborated with on BBC2’s The Restaurant. In 2007, David added sister restaurant, L’Autre Pied, to the brand before opening pop-up restaurant Pieds Nus in October 2013. David also runs a consultancy business where he takes on the role of mentor to restaurants that benefit from his 20 years of hands on experience in the industry.
