Neill Anthony spent ten years in Europe, honing his skills in the professional kitchens of Gordon Ramsay, Alyn Williams, Jérôme Henry, and Marcus Wareing before returning to the Mother City in 2010. As a private chef, his clients include Madonna, Victoria Beckham, Elton John, and U2. His TV show "Private Chef" is syndicated by the Food Channel to 160 countries, and its third season premiered in late 2018 on DStv.
Neill will be overseeing the culinary operations and vision for La Mouette Restaurant, who celebrated its 10th anniversary in May this year. He has spent the last few weeks developing new dishes, aiming to unveil a full new menu once La Mouette opens its doors again for trading after being closed due to COVID-19 for three months earlier this year.
"Neill's attention to detail and passion for creating approachable, yet elegant cuisine is exactly what we are looking to expand upon at La Mouette. With his appointment, we look forward to honing the knowledge and skills of our dedicated staff and to continue providing guests with the most memorable and authentic dining experience in Cape Town" says Gerrit Bruwer, owner of La Mouette.
Neill Anthony says of his appointment: "The classic yet produce-driven modern European style of La Mouette is a great inspiration to me. As a team, we will strive to create an incredible dining experience for our local and international guests. With a new beginning, we will face new challenges head-on and look forward to cooking some fantastic food".
"COVID-19 has thoroughly upended the hospitality industry, and it is doubtful that restaurants will go back to doing things the way we did before, probably for a very long time. However, La Mouette has never shied away from a challenge, and we will continue to innovate around social distancing while following existing protocols and maintaining the highest safety standards. The layout of La Mouette is uniquely suited to social distancing with the various smaller dining areas and outside patio. My team and I look forward to welcoming our customers back at La Mouette as soon as we can." says Gerrit Bruwer.
