Craig Best earned the title Head Chef after thirteen years of culinary experience amongst some of the industry’s leading venues and chefs. He joined Marina Social in November 2016.
Beginning his culinary experience at notorious Chef Gordon Ramsay’s restaurants, Craig had a fantastic step into the world of culinary excellence. The four-year journey included experience at both The Devonshire and The Warrington where Craig worked his way up the ladder, from demi-chef to sous chef.
Continuing his impressive career debut, Craig joined La Trompette, a 1 Michelin Star restaurant in London as Chef De Partie. His responsibilities included running the kitchen, including the pastry, ordering stock and assisting the menu changes. For two year he excelled in his role, which eventually landed him a Head Chef position at Michael Nadra Chiswick. One year later, Craig ventured backwards as Sous Chef at heavily acclaimed Tredwell’s & The Gilbert Scott, both Maruc Wareing restaurants. Surpassing his talents after one quick year, Craig made the big move to Dubai, where he took on the role, yet again as Head Chef, at Social Wine & Tapas, followed by his current role in the same position at Jason Atherton’s Marina Social.
