Protégé is an exciting new casual fine dining eatery under the guidance of previous Eat Out Chef of the Year, La Colombe’s Scot Kirton.

Scot is proud to be part of the process of recognising young talented chefs and giving them the opportunity to put themselves on the map. In keeping with this, the restaurant was aptly named Protégé.

Cameron Smith will head the kitchen team. Cameron has been working closely with Scot and James Gaag.

The idea with Protégé is to keep it casual and comfortable. Cameron is working with local suppliers to keep the menu as fresh and as seasonal as possible.

“The opening of Protégé excites me,” says Kirton. “It’s all about the freshest local produce used in the simplest of ways. I could not be prouder of having Cameron lead the team. He has given me so much over the years and now it’s time for me to help him achieve his dreams.”
