Stephen Moore appointed head chef at Grafene in Manchester
He joined from the nearby Gotham Hotel with previous experience including working for 3 AA-rosette restaurants at Church Green in Lymm under Aiden Byrne and at Thornton Hall Hotel on the Wirral under Matt Worswick.
“Making the transfer to Grafene has really allowed me to get creative in my work,” said Moore (pictured). “I have been given the opportunity to take Grafene favourites and transform the food into the next level of fine dining.
“The quality of the food really shines though with the menu development and I’m looking forward to working with Grafene to progress and continue to develop the culinary experience.”
Owner Paul Roden added: “Stephen is working with the current menu but will be varying and adding new dishes as he proceeds. He has really impressed since day one, and Grafene has definitely moved up a notch.
“You can taste it in the quality of food, and I witness it every day in Stephen’s drive and determination.”
