We met at periwinkles restaurant many years ago, both young, passionate and enthusiastic trainee chefs. One qualified, we opened our first restaurant 'Vasseur on Broadway' a successful boutique 35 seat restaurant which we owned and ran for 10 years. In 2000 we purchased and then transformed this beautiful 1920's homestead into what Nero is today. A few years on, with two wonderful boys- Jack and Harry, numerous awards, and a fantastic team of staff, we are still passionate and enthusiastic, but not as young as we once were!
