Prague Steals Top UK Chef

The newly opened restaurant Shiso in Prague is run by the top UK chef Paul Day, former chef of Nobu in London.

Prague, Czech Republic, December 04, 2008 --( The tides have turned. No longer does it seem that Eastern Europeans flock the shores of Britain in search of work, but rather theirs are now sought for new horizons of culinary pleasures.

November saw Prague become home to a British master of exquisite fare, Paul Day. Formerly of Nobu London (Michelin star holder), Paul joins the ranks of a growing number of contemporary restaurants opening in Prague- including the most recently opened restaurant of Gordon Ramsey- Maze.

Paul’s latest venture will see him as Executive Chef of the city’s first member’s only club, known simply as “LS” ( It has all the right ingredients, including the doorman, a full-service concierge, a contemporary library, private board rooms, and a suave cocktail lounge, paired to perfection with the eclectic Asian theme which Paul’s restaurant will follow. “There really is nothing quite like it” says Paul, “I’m looking forward to introducing the Czech market to the finer intricacies of Asian flavours”.

And Asian flavours is something he knows, amassing a vast knowledge and unique style by having worked at the best Asian restaurants with top chefs throughout London, New York and Tokyo- including with David Thomson at Nahm (another Michelin star holder).

Unlike other clubs in London, New York or Paris, LS does not intend to cater for the paparazzi glittering celebrity crowd, but rather the more private, high-flying elite of Central Europe. Membership is limited to a select few, and is by invitation only- with only a couple hundred invitations being issued initially. Millionaire and Monaco-resident, Wayne Sharpe is one of the founding members of LS Club and has been busy sending invites to his international crowd. When asked who is the latest person to join, he simply responds “It just wouldn’t be a club without at least one billionaire”.
