Founder’s Story

Tony's culinary journey began in his early years, where his love for food blossomed. At the age of 14, while studying abroad in the UK and residing in a boarding school, he embraced the opportunity to prepare a heartwarming turkey dinner for his fellow schoolmates who were feeling homesick. This experience opened his eyes to the incredible power of food to not only nourish but also bring people together, sparking his lifelong passion to create happiness through delicious cuisine.


In 2008, Tony left behind a successful career in investment banking to chase his dreams in Italy. Under the guidance of Michelin-starred chefs in Rome, he honed his skills and absorbed the essence of Italian gastronomy. Inspired and determined, he returned to Hong Kong in 2009 and opened his first restaurant, The Drawing Room. It quickly earned a prestigious Michelin one-star rating, captivating diners with its exquisite Italian flavours.


Driven to bring happiness through food to a wider audience, Tony transitioned from the kitchen to a leadership position as the CEO of DRC, introducing diverse cuisines and unique restaurant concepts, earning numerous accolades for their exceptional quality.
