Jack and Charlie Stein know a thing or two about great dining experiences. With a little insider knowledge, as well as years in the business, they bring a rather refreshing take to classic dishes and exciting wines. Experts in their fields Jack and Charlie have worked with some of the best chefs and wine makers in the world. This summer the sibling duo combine their expertise to host and serve a tasting evening celebrating great fresh shellfish.
Shellfish comes in different shapes, sizes, tastes and textures, and providing they’re cooked properly should all be savoured with equal enjoyment. So, discover more about a range of Jack and Charlie’s favourite shellfish at their summer of shellfish tasting evening.

For Jack Stein it’s all about the food.
Jack kicked off his career working as a kitchen porter during the school holidays, and at 16 tried his hand at front of house, working as a waiter throughout the remainder of his professional education. His heart was set on cooking, and he re-entered the family business after working as a chef at restaurants across the world, including La Régalade in Paris, before extensive travels to Australia, the Far East and Japan, via a stint in the kitchen at Tetsuya’s, Sydney. Jack has been Chef Director of our restaurants since 2017, overseeing all of the menus we serve.
