Thomas Byrne followed a more traditional path within some of the most distinguished establishment, and likes to think of cuisine as an ephemeral art. A Chef with the soul of a poet, he has the reserved nature of a dreamer and yet, he is very thorough.
As music lover and opera singer, he composes in very much the same way and with the same passion than the greatest composers their music, and even after 40 years, still takes the same pleasure in creating surprising and nostalgic symphonies of flavours.
In the kitchen, the joviality of the Irish chef is contagious: his dream of opening a restaurant with his great friend has come true. If you listen carefully, in the small window of time when the kitchens open to let the waiter pass, you may hear him sing and laugh.
For Thomas Byrne, cooking is a pleasure, quite simply.
