New Yorkers can now experience the London culinary scene without leaving the Big Apple.
Andrew Turner, Head Chef of London’s legendary Wiltons restaurant is coming to The Carlyle Restaurant for a week long Visiting Chef appearance. From March 19th through March 24th, Chef Turner will cook a special a la cart menu for dinner each night, bringing fine English dining to New York.
Since Wiltons was established in 1742, it has consistently enjoyed a reputation as the epitome of fine English dining in London. It is known for serving the finest oysters, seafood, wild fish and game to a clientele much like The Carlyle’s, which includes members of various Royal families, politicians, personalities and British aristocracy.
Andrew started his training in France and went on to work with well known chefs including Albert Roux and Anton Edelmann.
