Jason Saxby

Head Chef, Jason Saxby took over running Raes after its refurbishment in 2017, and has overseen a renaissance in the restaurant side of the venue. Raes cemented its reputation as an acclaimed food destination last month when it was named The Australian’s Hottest Regional Restaurant in the entire country.

Saxby, previously of Pilu, Sydney, is renowned for flavours that are comfortingly familiar, yet never fail to surprise. Saxby’s vision for Raes has been an approachable yet dynamic Italian-inspired menu. And now he is bringing his Italian style cooking to Barrio Eatery & Bar, for one night only, slinging plates with Barrio head chef Francisco Smoje. 

‘I am looking forward to pushing myself to create a menu that simultaneously shows my ethos and flavours, but at a lower price point. Expect ways of minimising waste and ways of using the natural cooking elements of flame, wood, ash and coals in all its glory’, says Jason.
