Following a very successful first year, Dine Out Vancouver’s “World Chef Exchange”, Season two brings together great new partnerships in some of Vancouver’s best rooms. AnnaLena has been invited to participate and are very excited to be welcoming Chef James Lowe from Lyles London to the restaurant this January.
About Chef James Lowe
Chef James Lowe opened his first restaurant, Lyle’s, in Shoreditch in April 2014. The food is British, produce-led and driven by a common-sense philosophy. He was previously head chef at St John Bread & Wine for four years and started the London based chef collective the Young Turks in 2011. He draws inspiration from a network of farmers and fishermen that he has been working with over the last eight years. His desire is to show people, both at home and abroad, what’s possible with British ingredients through his fresh approach.
Lyle’s was voted 6th place at the Restaurant Magazine 50 Best UK Restaurant Awards 2015 and won their first Michelin star in September 2015 – eighteen months after opening. Most recently Lyle’s was named 65th best restaurant in the world at the San Pellegrino Awards.
