Dave honed his culinary style at Martin Bosley’s early on in his career. It didn’t take long for him to set his sights on the Michelin-starred kitchens of London and he landed on his feet, scoring a job at newly starred Savoy Grill. After his time in London, he returned closer to home to take up a role with, Brent Savage – co-owner of Sydney’s hatted The Bentley Restaurant and Bar, who would become his most important culinary mentor. Drawn home by an opportunity to head up the kitchen at New Zealand culinary institution - Matterhorn. But his wanderlust took hold again and sadly Wellington’s loss was Melbourne’s gain as Dave left to open Town Mouse, they gained a loyal following and went on to open Embla and now Lesa. Dave’s cuisine displays a firm grasp on old and new world technique, thought, detail, lightness and balance, yet still manages to remain delicious and humble enough to be eaten every day. 

Dave Verheul brings his creative talents back to Cuba Street. For two nights Dave will take over Floriditas to give us a taste of his culinary creativity using local ingredients. We are excited to have Dave back in the street
