A new general manager and head chef joins the team at the venue in the Westin hotel.
The new head chef, Daniel Perez began his gourmet career at a young age in traditional Spanish kitchens which has helped him climb the ranks from demi chef to chef de partie and head chef across Spain and Dubai.
His first UAE stint included two years in Crowne Plaza Dubai followed by three years as chef de partie at El Sur before being promoted to head chef.
The new general manager, Roberto Avila has worked throughout the hospitality industry from Mexico and Europe to the UAE where he started as a bartender at Tortuga Mexican Kitchen, Mina A’ Salam eventually becoming the bar manager at Al Grissino in DIFC.
In the coming months, guests will see the atmosphere and serving techniques at El Sur updated to authentic taperia style seen in old Spain where locals dine from morning till night. Weekend lunches will see masses of tapas dishes passed from table to table, so diners can create a bespoke meal.
