Favourite international holiday destination, and why?
Japan. I love to visit the hot spring hotels and order seasonal Japanese food which is served in your private room. It is a holiday for me to stay in. We try to achieve that private dining room experience in our restaurants.
Ultimate Australian escape, and why?
Coffin Bay, South Australia. I love oysters, so a visit to a South Australian oyster farm is perfect for me.
When I retire, the country. I’ve been in the city my entire life, which is necessary to realise my business dreams.
Favourite room in your home, and why?
My garage – I love cars.
What has been your proudest moment building your restaurant empire?
When I meet someone and they ask what I do, I say I’m a restaurateur.
Sono is opening in a new location. What can diners expect from the new Sono?
Another benchmark in dining. A restaurant that keeps the traditional feel people love from Sono, with modern influences to bring the dining experience to another level.
