The Botanical is fine dining restaurant in Melbourne. And it also known for Cheong Liew signature dishes.It also offers function room services.

After two successful years as Executive Chef at  The Botanical, Cheong Liew is stepping down to pave the way for his protégé Luke Brabin

to take the reigns at the iconic South Yarra restaurant. With more than 43 years in the industry, the highly acclaimed Liew will be hanging up his whites and starting his well-deserved retirement as of 31 July 2012.

New Executive Chef, Brabin began his career as Liew's apprentice at Adelaide's well-regarded The Grange in 2002. After working under the esteemed chef's guidance for four years, he learnt the craft that saw his mentor become one of Australia's most recognised and awarded chef's, being the first to receive an OAM (Medal of the Order of Australia) in 1999 for his contribution to the food and restaurant industry and voted "one of the 10 hottest chefs alive" by US Food & Wine Magazine that same year.

After leaving Adelaide in 2006, Brabin travelled extensively throughout Asia before returning to Melbourne to become Sous Chef at Gordon Ramsay's Maze. In 2010, following Liew's appointment as Executive Chef of The Botanical, Brabin eagerly accepted his former colleague's invitation to join him again, this time as Head Chef."

Working with Cheong for such a long time has been an incredible experience for me, I have learnt so much from him, which will always influence what I do. I'm thrilled to be stepping up and taking on the role of Executive Chef of The Botanical," says Brabin.
