The Byron at Byron
Jonathan Barthelmess, Owner & Chef of Sydney’s favourite restaurant, The Apollo, will head north to join forces with Matthew Kemp, Executive Chef, The Byron at Byron for a Mediterranean inspired rustic culinary collaboration.
Barthelmess is one of Australia’s most exciting chefs. He was greatly influenced by his mentors Stefano Manfredi and Janni Kyritsis, both masters of Mediterranean cooking in Australia. Now in its seventh year, The Apollo continues to excite the Sydney dining scene and was named ‘one of the world’s most exciting places to eat’ by renowned restaurant critic Terry Durack.
In 2016, Barthelmess opened The Apollo in the bustling heart of Tokyo and he is currently planning to open a restaurant later this year in his hometown, under the Story Bridge on the edge of the Brisbane River.
Earlier this year, The Byron at Byron underwent a six week transformation of the Resort restaurant, bar and central facilities in partnership with interior designers Luchetti Krelle and appointed acclaimed chef Matthew Kemp to lead the kitchen team.
