Down to earth new team for threesixty

Down to earth new team for threesixty

threesixty Queenstown has welcomed fresh new talent to deliver a delicious, down to earth winter dining experience at the contemporary bar and restaurant in Queenstown’s Beach Street.

Recently appointed Food and Beverages Manager Vinni Patena and Executive Chef Fabien Simon have each been promoted to their new roles - Vinni has made the move to threesixty from Crowne Plaza Auckland where he worked as Functions and Events Manager for two and a half years and Fabien was formerly Sous Chef at threesixty.

Vinni brings 11 years hospitality know-how in four and five-star hotels to his new role. He says the fresh air, scenery and relaxed attitude of the people has made him fall in love with Queenstown and really understand the reasoning behind the threesixty ‘Down to Earth’ philosophy.

“Queenstown has effortless beauty and threesixty encapsulates this from the moment you walk in, from its lake and mountain views to the inviting décor and superb local ingredients found on your plate.”

Executive Chef Fabien and recently appointed Sous Chef Sebastian Calais are currently putting the finishing touches to the new winter menu, which is to feature hearty dishes made from locally sourced produce.

For Fabien and his team, the threesixty dining experience is about New Zealand cuisine created with only the freshest local ingredients and modern European cooking techniques.

“This is the application of our ‘Down to Earth’ philosophy. We want to make our guests feel as though they have had a taste of something special and very Central Otago.”

“It’s not just about food, it’s about the way we interact with the world around us. We value our relationships with our suppliers and work closely with local producers, farmers and growers to ensure only the best produce finds its way onto the plate.”

threesixty offers a total evening experience with several distinct and contemporary environments. The main bar and restaurant area looks out over Lake Wakatipu to The Remarkables whilst the Bed Bar features a custom-made, oversize divan with huge throw cushions. The Martini Room is enclosed by opulent deep red velvet curtains, nestled behind huge paddle doors.
