Widely travelled and widely experienced Romain Devic has been appointed Executive Chef of Nobu Shoreditch, London’s newest addition to the world-famous restaurant group.
And he has hit the ground running, immediately launching Nobu Café, serving an eclectic café menu with an exclusive Matcha bar, London’s only Kinto hand-brew Japanese filter-coffee, and a luxurious Nobu-style Afternoon tea in the lobby of the Nobu Hotel Shoreditch, which opened last July.
Chef Romain began his career as commis pastry chef at Hotel Les Airelles in Courchevel before moving on to Michelin-starred restaurants Bar & Boeuf in Monte Carlo, Le Jules Verne on the second floor of the Eiffel Tower and Auberge du Vieux Puits.
He joined Nobu in 2012 as pastry sous-chef at Nobu Miami Beach, and soon moved to Nobu Atlantis Paradise Island in The Bahamas. Last year, he was part of the team assisting in the launch of Nobu Hotel Ibiza Bay.
Nobu was founded in 1994 by Japanese chef Nobu Matsuhisa with his first restaurant in partnership with the actor Robert De Niro. There are now seven Nobu hotels worldwide, thee of them in London, and the brand encompasses 38 restaurants.
