Experience
Lunch with Tony at Ammo

Tony is the Founder and CEO of Drawing Room Concepts, a six-restaurant empire in Hong Kong including the Michelin-starred The Drawing Room

Description

With a passion for cooking and hospitality, Tony left the investment banking industry in 2008 and packed his bags for Rome, where he spent a year cooking at a One Michelin Star restaurant. Six years later today, Tony runs Drawing Room Concepts (www.drawingroomconcepts.com), a six-restaurant empire in Hong Kong, with 230 employees and HK$120 million in annual revenues.

Apart from his hospitality business, Tony is also a featured celebrity chef and has participated in different TV shows including NOW TV’s Chef Corner and RTHK’s On Food and Culture.

Tony’s passion for Cooking and Hospitality started with a meal he cooked in 1996, whilst aged 14, for a group of friends. Tony will never forget the cheerfulness the meal brought to his friends and the satisfaction he derived from their pleasure – these are the same reasons that still drive him all today.

In 2003, Tony graduated from the University College London with a BA in Economics. Although determined to enter the Restaurant Hospitality Industry, he chose to work instead in accounting at Pricewaterhouse Coopers. Although, armed with a Diploma in Culinary Arts, Tony realized that the restaurant business was too tough and too competitive to enter without sufficient knowledge and skill. For the next three years he carefully studied how successful enterprises were operated, including some of the largest restaurant groups in Hong Kong.

In 2006, Tony joined the investment banking industry to earn the capital required to fulfill his dreams. In 2008, he told his bosses it was time for him to pursue his passion and he packed his bags for Rome. Tony spent the next year cooking at Ristorante All’Oro, a One Michelin Star restaurant in Rome. Under the disciplined guidance of Chef Riccardo Di Giacinto, Tony continued to hone his culinary skills.

His entrepreneurial and restaurateur journey began in 2009. Together with his long time friend and mentor, Chef Roland Schuller, Tony opened his first restaurant The Drawing Room, which was Michelin-starred in 2010.

The restaurants under Drawing Room Concepts include The Drawing Room, Ammo, Le Salon, Made in HK, Shiok! and Hainan Shaoye. More details at www.drawingroomconcepts.com/?page=restaurants.
