A Zao Jun Pan-Asian Test Kitchen by Chef Lloyd Roberts
Chef Lloyd Roberts resume is so impressive it sounds made up. Executive Chef at Wakame Dubai. Executive Chef at Gramercy Park Hotel in NYC, Executive Chef at Nobu in Moscow and at Nobu in Budapest. We could go on, but we don’t want to embarrass him. Snatching inspiration from some of the world’s most beautiful environments with an imaginative Japanese style of his own. You might be wondering …what’s next up for Lloyd? We’re glad you asked: he’ll be working his magic at frame for one night only, as a Test Kitchen for his new concept, Zao Jun. Prepare to be inspired by our latest chef-crush, who has a personal motto we hold close to our hearts as well, “Never give up on your dreams, there is always another way to create something beautiful.” – Lloyd Roberts
