Gary Rhodes is truly “the chef’s chef”, respected by his peers for an attention to detail that has won him a constellation of Michelin stars. In his TV series and books, he has championed classic British cuisine – but his travels have informed him about the rich gastronomic heritage of countries and regions throughout the world, notably the Caribbean. In 2003, he opened his eponymous London restaurant, Rhodes Twenty Four, with spectacular views over the City from Tower 42. Two other gourmet restaurants in the West End followed. Further ground-breaking ventures in 2004 included the opening of his first overseas restaurant at the five-star Calabash Hotel in Grenada. Two years ago, he opened Rhodes Mezzanine at the Grosvenor House Hotel in Dubai.
