A celebrated chef-restaurateur with 17 restaurants worldwide, Jason Atherton rose to fame in the noughties when, alongside mentor Gordon Ramsay, he created the Maze concept and opened the brand in London, New York, Cape Town, Prague, Doha and Melbourne. Since launching his first business in 2010 in Singapore (now closed), Atherton has gone on to open eight restaurants in London, three with Michelin stars, alongside eateries in Dubai, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Cebu in the Philippines, Sydney and New York. His US restaurant, the Clocktower, which opened in the New York Edition hotel in 2015 in partnership with Ian Schrager and Marriott International (his second such venture with lifestyle brand Edition, following the launch of the brand's London hotel in 2013), was awarded a Michelin star in October 2017, bringing his tally in the little red book to four.
