A la Carte Menu


 Dark Kitchen       £200

 Dark Kitchen concept  design, menus, and operational lay-out.


 Millennial trends are changing the way people shop, interact,

 collaborate… and dine. People are spending less time eating in

 restaurants and have less patience for long waiting periods, but they

 still want to enjoy excellent food – in the privacy of their own homes.

 New delivery and takeout business models respond to this need and

 also pave the way for dark kitchens – or restaurants without the

 added overhead of in-house dining experiences.

Select

 Price includes three visits at your venue and we would stress test     your operations and provide you with a detailed report at the end based on customer service, value for money, quality of food & drink, speed, and overall ambiance. 


 You pay for your car's M.O.T. every year, so why not your business??



 We always cover are own costs when visiting venues.

About me

I am currently the General Manager at Brasserie Ecosse in Dundee a new launch premium restaurant & bar covering 7,000 sq feet that I started 3 years ago. I have set up my own hospitality consultancy, and hoping to work with a range of different businesses in the sector, from restaurants, hotels and bistros, to pubs and cafes.

Originally from Chicago of Greek heritage, I have worked in senior level hospitality all over the world, at both a 2 Rosette and 3 Michelin Star level.  In Chicago & Manhattan I worked in 3 Michelin star restaurants and studied Hospitality Management.  In Greece,  I spearheaded Luxury 5 star Resort Multi-Food & Beverage outlet operations for leading Hotels of the World catering to celebrities and royal families. Moving to Scotland, I occupied senior Food & Beverage Management roles at Gleneagles & Malmaison.

I was instrumental in setting up a Training Academy within Brasserie Ecosse.

I’ve been very fortunate to work in some amazing establishments in my career so far, the hospitality sector can open so many doors and lead to a very rewarding career in beautiful locations.

I’m really enjoying my time in Scotland at and want to give something back to my industry. I’d like to think that my knowledge and experience could be useful to hospitality businesses of all sizes as we recover from this terrible pandemic which has brought our industry to its knees.

Many hospitality businesses will sadly have closed, but for those that remain open, my concern is that there will be a skills shortage across all levels, particularly in management.

Experienced management level is essential to not only steer the business to profit, but to bring on youngsters and ensure they get the proper training for Scotland's hospitality future.





My latest work
