Paul arrived in 2009 to set up a Swiss wine bar/restaurant in Millenia walk called Oenotheque by Wine Universe. As his first Head Chef position, it was the perfect opportunity to cut his teeth & start developing his own style. The restaurant prospered and had generated a strong crowd from the surrounding offices. During his time, Oenotheque was included in Tatler’s Best in Singapore list 2011.
After nearly 2 ½ years, Paul made the big move to Au Petit Salut, an institution of French cuisine. With such a huge history and massive following, Paul knew it was a big task to make an impression.
As Executive Chef of the re-branded Salut Group, Paul oversaw the opening of Chez Petit Salut (MBFC) and renovation of Chez Petit Salut (Holland Village)
During his time at Au Petit Salut, Paul developed very close relationships with both Alice Low-Ang (owner) & Jerome Desfonds (restaurant manager). Late in 2013, the three of them sat down and discussed the possibility of setting up a new, small & personal concept. A restaurant that could cater to individual customer’s needs, working with a small, fine & seasonal menu and a well thought out wine list…..Rhubarb was born.
