Members of his family are entitled to eathalf price in any of the restaurants on a Monday evening unless the restaurantis fully booked.

He also received£5,000 from a leading newspaper when he was voted chef of the year by thepaper’s readers. The company has recently opened a further restaurant inCardiff. Henri is required to monitorthis new restaurant for its first three years and is reimbursed his travellingexpenses from the Islington restaurant to Cardiff. Being a keen rugby fan, Henri often arrangeshis journeys to Cardiff to coincide with major rugby matches, spending theweekend in Cardiff and eating in the restaurant.
