Woollahra's Hotel Centennial is welcoming chef Tom 'Russ' Deadman to the head position. Taking over the kitchen from Justin North with whom he started his Australian career as a chef in 2010, Tom will ensure that he continues the Hotel's fine dining menu with serious skill.
After working for the Michelin star restaurant, Reads in Kent, the East London born chef moved to Sydney in 2009. Tom worked at both North's venues, the famed Becasse and Quarter Twenty One, before moving onto the Morrison and the Bourbon before returning to work with North at the Hotel Centennial, where he's been since 2014. Knowing the ins and outs of the kitchen, Tom will continue to serve the venue's signature classics but will also add his own flair, creating a delicious new summer menu. A Bondi resident, Tom is a fan of supporting local producers, often perusing growers markets for the best in seasonal and sustainable produce. Look out for elements of this passion for produce in Tom Deadman's exciting new menu at the Hotel Centennial.
On Friday October 17, the venue will welcome summer by launching the Centennial Social. Held every night from Tuesday to Friday offering guests drink specials and local Sydney favourite, DJ Alice Q spinning cool tunes to celebrate the time of year where Sydney comes alive.
