Paul Walsh has spent the last 18 years working alongside many of the UK’s most respected and well-known talents in some of London’s most demanding kitchens. Paul has worked at the Savoy Grill when it reopened under the direction of Marcus Wareing, and helped it to achieve a Michelin star, the first in its 100-year history. In 2005, Paul moved to Restaurant Gordon Ramsay on Royal Hospital Road, leaving in 2010 to launch the first 28-50 Wine Workshop and Kitchen, a venture from Icelandic chef Agnar Sverrisson and French master sommelier Xavier Rousset. Paul launched two further 28-50 sites before leaving to work with Jason Atherton, taking the Executive Chef position at City Social in April 2014. Three months after opening, City Social was awarded a coveted Michelin star in the 2015 Michelin Guide. Paul is now extremely excited to take the helm at The Betterment and continue his relationship and journey with Jason and The Social Company.
