He returned to London as Head Chef at the Four Seasons, Inn on the Park, where he earned a Michelin star within the year, before opening Bistrot Bruno in Soho (The Times Restaurant of the Year 1993).

"Bruno Loubet's return to Britain is the most exciting comeback since Jesus appeared on the road to Emmaus just hours after the Crucifixion and said 'It ain't over till it's over'." -- Giles Coren The Times "Welcome back, Bruno, we needed you." -- A.A. Gill The Sunday Times
