Nelly began his career as an apprentice at Michelin-starred restaurant Northcote Manor (UK) at the young age of 15, where he was trained by chef patron Nigel Haworth and his team including Warrick Dodds, Mark Birchill, and Lisa Allen. Developing his passion for food and flavours, Nelly was one of the first to complete an apprenticeship at Northcote before moving to Stanley House (UK) in 2007 working with Steve Williams, stepping into the role of Head Chef at just 22.
Nelly at the tender age of 29 opened Nel. in February 2015 and offers guests the finest international cuisines, with an innovative, contemporary flair.
Well known for his role as Nel. restaurant’s head chef and owner, Nelly is finding his feet as one of Sydney’s top chef personalities and has cooked at Taste of Sydney, for Queen Elizabeth II’s 90th birthday celebration at the British High Commission.
Nelly likes to stamp his own personality on his food with childhood memories, a fun innovative style and always cooks with a smile on his face.
Nelly's northern banter, charm and wit really shines through his food, ambience and staff at nel restaurant. Situated down a small flight of stairs off Wentworth Avenue in Sydney CBD you will find yourself in a romantic and intimate setting. The calm and composed kitchen orchestrates two sittings and takes the customer on a fun, playful and tasty journey.
