He brings with him a wealth of expertise, having cooked for Her Majesty The Queen of England and The Spanish Royal Family, and spent four years with Gordon Ramsay Group.
As the hotel transitions through an exciting beautification process with the new lobby and bar recently opened, and Irving’s appointment marks the next stage in the process with the new restaurant concept due to be trading by mid December. Chris is already in Sydney sourcing sustainable Australian paddock-to-plate produce to create an innovative food experience for Walsh Bay diners.
