Avenue 87 is helmed by two Singaporean chef friends – Glen Tay and Alex Phan. Both chefs embarked on their professional careers at Tippling Club, with opportunities to participate in culinary events across Asia and Europe. Glen staged at Attica in Melbourne, while Alex was at Viajante, London. Then, their journeys diverged.
After 7 years with Tippling Club, Glen moved to Shanghai in 2016 to join the highly acclaimed Ultraviolet by Paul Pairet (3-Michelin Stars, No. 41 in Asia 50 Best 2020). Ultraviolet is a 10-guest, single-table restaurant in which high technology choreographs each course of the meal into an immersive experience.
As the restaurant’s Executive Sous Chef, Glen led his team with clockwork precision to present the multi-sensorial dishes.
Glen’s 5 years with the highly acclaimed restaurant saw the full maturation of talent and expertise that made him the chef he is today.
