Kicking off the Petite Bouche Chef of The Month for 2019 is chef James Metcalfe. James is the Managing Director of JRM Hospitality and owner of Sydney's newest all-day restaurant and wine bar Saint George, Sydney.
His career has spanned over 25 years working in both hatted and Michelin star restaurants across Sydney and London. JRM officially began in 2009 when James spotted a gap in the market for highly trained staff in the hospitality sector for venues and events.
James says "My wife Lisa joined in 2013 to help build what we have today. Event staffing, permanent recruitment, hospitality consulting, venue, events and catering. I am extremely proud of the team we now have and providing a hands-on approach, excellent service and food for our clients."
Saint George opened in November 2018. Sydneysiders are spoilt for choice, with breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner menus to tantalise every palette, as well as an extensive hand-crafted cocktail menu and wine menu with over 70 wines to choose from.
The food at Saint George is simple, local and seasonal.
