Antonio is the head bartender at York & Albany in Camden and has been with Gordon Ramsay Restaurants since June 2017. He loves what he does, and thrives on keeping the bar in order, training new staff, and instilling his passion about the industry into his team.
He loves talking with guests, drinking classic cocktails, and discovering new bars. Antonio also loves to talk with other bartenders, comparing ideas, and reading drinks menus. His expectations for a drinks menu are very high – if it doesn’t catch his attention in the first few drinks, he’ll stop reading it!
Whilst Antonio loves creating new and exciting cocktails, he feels that the best inspiration will always come from the classics. They are called classic for a reason! His favourite drink is a Negroni, saying that it is ‘such a simple drink and at the same time so complete. It's a drink for anyone and is perfect at any time of the day’.
