Michael Turner

Head Chef

Michael joined Gordon Ramsay Restaurants as a Commis Chef and was involved in the opening of Bread Street Kitchen, St. Paul's in 2011, before working his way up the ranks to become the restaurant's Head Chef. Between then and joining the kitchen team at Savoy Grill in 2019, Michael also was part of the opening team for Heddon Street Kitchen and spent time at the Michelin-starred Pétrus.

Always keen to expand his knowledge and skills in fine dining, Michael has completed stages in the three Michelin star kitchen of Restaurant Gordon Ramsay and at chef Tom Kerridge's two Michelin-starred pub, the Hand and Flowers in Marlow. 

In 2017, Michael also competed in the San Pellegrino National Young Chef of Year competition, placing third in the UK, and was later shortlisted for the 2019 Young Chef of the Year Awards. 

Over the years he has cemented his passion and flair for modern British cuisine, focusing on using the best produce available as he strives to produce simple, seasonal dishes that deliver on flavour.

Anthony Obeuf

General Manager

Originally from Lyon, France, Anthony’s interest in the hospitality industry started at a young age as he grew up in the city’s Sofitel Hotel where his father worked. ‘My dad has always been my mentor and source of inspiration’ he says, and subsequently went on to study hospitality at École Hotelière Savoie Léman.

At 18 he worked weekends and holidays as a luggage porter before making the move to London to further his career. Starting at the Sofitel in St James, then Aqua Shard near London Bridge, his experience and confidence grew. Anthony joined us at Savoy Grill as Chef de Rang originally and says ‘Coming back as General Manager is a big achievement, it really means a lot to me.’

Anthony is passionate about delivering a memorable experience to guests from the minute they walk through the door. To do this, he believes having a sense of humour is key. ‘You almost have to be a comedian, you need the power to make people happy. It’s a remarkable industry and a real privilege to work in such a stunning establishment as the Savoy’.

Outside of work, he loves cooking, playing sport, and keeping on top of all the latest trends and experiences within the hotel, bar and restaurant world. Travel plays a big part in this and one of the most memorable trips he took was to Mumbai, India, where the exciting cuisine and exotic flavours really blew him away.  

SG Masahito Suzuki

Masahito Suzuki

Head Sommelier

Savoy Grill’s Head Sommelier, Masahito, is from Sendai in northern Japan. He studied bio technology and during his studies became very interested in the history and science of alcohol. Soon after, he met a Japanese international sommelier who taught him that being a sommelier is not just about wine, it’s about all kinds of spirits and drinks, and this inspired him to become a bartender. Masahito says that being a sommelier is ‘not being a wine waiter. We should know about all beverages and how they compliment different foods as well as being a key actor in the restaurant’.

Masahito is inspired by many legendary chefs and sommeliers. He enjoys reading his favourite old wine books and his key focus is always on the importance of teamwork.
