Founder & Chef Proprietor
Chef Vicky Lau
Chef-proprietor Vicky Lau is a woman of few words, but through cooking, she expresses her deepest emotions, curiosity and wildest imaginations. Her artistic background led to a path to cuisine through the realisation that the plate could be a canvas for her artistic intuition. Searching for perfection in all aspects of her work, she is on a permanent quest to discover and reimagine flavours and textures that result in gustatory revelation.
Within a short period, Vicky has established herself to be a veteran of the industry, most notably earning Asia’s Best Female Chef 2015, maintaining 1 Michelin Star since opening and rising to 2 stars in 2021, while also being a member of the Relais & Châteaux properties and board member of Feeding Hong Kong.
Hailing from the balmy South of France and with a presence all over the world, Romain Herbreteau has built a colorful career on his passion for F&B service and hospitality. With over a decade of F&B service training and job experiences in France, UK, Spain, Japan, and now Hong Kong, Herbreteau has worked his way from the bottom-up to become a true industry jack-of-all-trades.
In 2014, Herbreteau’s hospitality services were called upon by Dominique Bouchet in Tokyo, Japan, to assist in the restaurant’s opening in the city’s prestigious Ginza district. His responsibilities ranged from designing the food and wine concept, maintaining supplier relations to staff training and quality control. Dominique Bouchet opened its doors to high critical acclaim, receiving two Michelin stars after only four months into operations. Herbreteau continued to move up the ladder at Dominique Bouchet Group, leading pop-up events and new restaurant openings under the group as General Manager, before finally rising to the role of Director of Operations in 2019.
