On behalf of Maison Dellos we are looking for a skilled Pan-Asian Executive Chef for one of the most iconic build restaurants in the world.

Turandot is quite possibly the gleaming jewel of Moscow’s increasingly glittering culinary scene for wealthy diners. Rumours put the costs of the dining palace at more than $50 million, and it took more than six years to build.

Result: China meets Château de Versailles.

The restaurant is owned by artist Andrei Dellos who also owns the famous Café Pushkin nearby and has several other projects in Moscow, as well as abroad including Betony in New York and Café Pouchkine in Paris.

There are 500 seats throughout the grand restaurant – 200 in the main dining room (1st and 2nd floor), 125 in private cabinets and 175 in banquet halls. The menu is essentially Chinese although there’s also a 12-cover Japanese kitchen.

The current menus were designed by Hong Kong-born and London-based, renowned restaurateur and culinary consultant Alan Yau (Hakkasan).

Now Turandot is ready to expand the Asian line and are looking for an Executive Chef with an expertise within Pan-Asian cuisine to deliver an exciting and innovative food experience.
