Paul Walsh wins Chef of the Year at the 2016 Foodservice Cateys 

Paul Walsh, Executive Chef at City Social, our partnership restaurant with Jason Atherton, has won Chef of the Year at the Foodservice Cateys 2016, another one to add to his growing list of awards and acclaim.

Paul has been celebrated for his success on delivering an expert experience at highly rated City Social. Leading 32 chefs to serve up to 280 covers a day, Paul curates a menu based on British ingredients and focuses on using all the elements of those ingredients. He champions the lengths that his suppliers have gone to provide him with the best British produce and it’s easy to see this being showcased in his dishes at the Michelin Star restaurant.

James Boyle, Managing Director of Restaurant Associates, added:

“It is an outstanding achievement for Paul Walsh at City Social to have won the Chef of the Year award. This is a great accolade for Paul following on from a week where we retained our Michelin Star at City Social.”

Paul has also been working with Jason to design the new menus for Temple & Sons, the second partnership restaurant between The Social Company and Restaurant Associates, opening this month. He will head up the kitchen of the new venture while keeping a firm grasp of his current captaincy.

We couldn’t be prouder of Paul and are looking forward to some more surprises from him in the future, watch this space.
