You need business partners. That one is the toughest thing! You wake up every day, breathe in At the end of the night, you tell yourself, I have worked! I did a good job! That to me is I thought. And they come. How do you articulate that sense of purpose?

That means that dishes. You can feel the tension building. The whole team from the dining room and the cooks gather around James Spreadbury, the restaurant manager, at the entrance.

Within 18 months, the restaurant earned a Michelin star. It was sea bass with algae and mussels and a wonderful broth! Another sea bass, but with smoked avocado, pistachio oil, lime zest and dashi.
