Loyal member of The Staff Canteen, executive chef and co-owner of Dublin's Nautilus Restaurant, Alan Higgins, has announced that it was set for a big change,10 years after he first joined the establishment. 

The newly-revamped restaurant, now called Sienna's, as is the chef's daughter, will serve Italian-inspired food.

The chef shared the news on Twitter, commemorating the restaurant's decade-long tenure and thanking patrons for their support. 

Twice named member of the month on The Staff Canteen, Alan Higgins held the reigns at the family-run, seafood-led restaurant with his wife Robyn, who ran front of house - and assumedly, will continue to do so at Sienna's.

He recently told The Staff Canteen that he viewed the lockdown as " time to spend with my family," which, he said, "I wouldn't normally get to do a lot.

"It's also a good time to do some research, better yourself and maybe learn a few new things. We are all in the same boat.
