Swedish-born chef Jonas Karlsson joined Harvey Nichols in April 2004 and became head chef when Helena Puolakka left to head up Skylon in March 2007, having been acting executive head chef while Puolakka was on maternity leave prior to her departure. Before joining the Knightsbridge department store, he worked at D&D London’s Orrery restaurant with Chris Galvin and Andre Garrett for two-and-a-half years. But his first role in the UK was with Michael Weiss at sister D&D restaurant Coq d’Argent, where Karlsson spent 18 months. At the Fifth Floor restaurant and bar, Karlsson has recently been drawing on his Baltic heritage to develop a range of ‘light bites’ – or Russian zakuski – for the bar.
