Former Michelin-starred chef Alyn Williams has joined Park Row as Executive Chef.

Alyn won a Michelin star at his restaurant at The Westbury Hotel in Mayfair which he held for eight years and was also named National Chef of the Year in 2012.

He has worked at some of the very best kitchens in Britain, training under Marcus Wareing and Gordon Ramsay.

Commenting on his new appointment at Park Row Alyn said: “I’m super excited to be joining James and the creative team at Park Row. Creating a menu to fit alongside the stories of DC Comics has been a fun challenge that I’m sure will entice both foodies and fans alike. Putting the subtle theme to one side, Park Row is very serious about its food and owners Wonderland Restaurants have some incredible projects in the pipeline that I can’t wait to be a part of.”

Guests visiting the restaurant can expect dishes such as rabbit, smoked chicken terrine, tarragon and confit rabbit samosa as well as Cornish stone bass, crispy caviar and chive butter, with Alyn’s new menu at Park Row set to launch in October.


Commenting on Alyn’s move to Park Row, Culinary Alchemist and CEO of Wonderland Restaurants James Bulmer said: “Alyn is one of our country’s greatest chefs with a huge pedigree. He is a massive coup for us here at the Academy of Curiosity & Wonderment and a super talented, lovely and genuine person, a chef who focuses heavily on training and inspiring the future stars of tomorrow.”

James added: “His plates display his own unique culinary personality and by merging this with our creative cuisine of theatrical gastromony, I cannot wait to share our new menu with our guests. We now have two stellar British chefs at Park Row and The Monarch Theatre in both Alyn and Karl.”

Alyn Williams joins the kitchen alongside Karl O’Dell, Executive Chef of The Monarch Theatre, a 20-seat immersive dining experience set within Park Row.
