Chef Sally Abé has appointed Maciej Lesiewicz as Restaurant Manager at The Pem, her signature restaurant at Conrad London St. James in the heart of Westminster.
Maciej brings with him a wealth of experience in fine dining and Michelin-starred restaurants, having spent the last eight years working at renowned restaurants in London following a move to the capital from Rome, Italy, where he grew up having moved there at a very young age from Poland.
Maciej began his London career at Outlaw’s at The Capital under Nathan Outlaw, before moving to two Michelin-starred The Square in Mayfair. From 2016 to 2020, he worked with Jason Atherton across his collection of restaurants, including Pollen Street Social, Little Social, and at the five-star Biltmore Hotel.
Maciej said, “I believe The Pem is outstanding and I’m incredibly proud to have joined the team and to be able to work alongside an incredible chef like Sally Abé. I really pride myself on a personal service, and I can’t wait to meet all of our guests and give them the full Pem experience.'
Sally added, 'All of us here at The Pem are very excited to have Maciej starting with us. He comes from a great background with a very impressive CV, and I know the restaurant and our guests will be in great hands with him.”
