Restaurant serves up partnership with celebrity chef

The Sash Restaurant Group has announced Aldo Zilli as its resident chef consultant.

Zilli will bring his expertise to Birmingham and create new concepts for the UK market alongside the Sash Group team.

The Sash Group are the owners of both Lucarelli restaurant in the Mailbox Birmingham and West Bromwich.

After the staffing crisis of the past year, Zilli will also be working with the staff to help them with their career development, training and motivation in an effort to retain talent in the hospitality industry.

General manager Alessandro Meraglia said: “We are delighted to have Aldo on board to be part of the Lucarelli family and looking forward to him showcasing his amazing signature dishes. Embodying so much Italian charm, style and fine food, Aldo and Lucarelli are a real culinary match.”

Zilli said: “Back then I knew the city had the potential to become one of the best in the world and the talent here has certainly proven that. With so many Michelin starred places and so much diverse offerings, the city is a must-visit for restaurant lovers.”

In the coming months, Zilli will be hosting master classes and special events at the Mailbox and West Bromwich venues.
