A new restaurant manager has joined HIX Mayfair at Brown’s Hotel.
Stuart Johnson, general of Brown’s Hotel and Mark Hix, director of food at the hotel has welcomed Markus Savage to head up the property’s established restaurant.
Having previously worked alongside Mark Hix during their time with Caprice Holdings Ltd, Savage is a timely addition to the team at HIX Mayfair and brings with him a wealth of experience garnered at some of London’s most iconic restaurants.
His career began on the Queen Elizabeth 2 cruise liner where he worked for five years in The Queen’s Grill until 1997.
He made his London debut working for The Ivy, where he progressed from waiter to assistant manager.
From there, having worked for sister restaurant The Wolseley, he was chosen to be part of the opening management team for The Delaunay for Rex Restaurants Associates.
It was not until 2014 that Savage made the transition into the hotel sector of the hospitality industry when he helped open The Holborn Dining Room at Rosewood Hotel before gaining valuable experience as director of events operations for the hotel.
Savage is now a month into his role and is looking forward to a busy festive season.
In 2017 he will join Mark Hix in hosting monthly dinners and Carving Masterclasses at Brown’s Hotel.
