Chef: Lawrence Rogers

Lawrence Rogers is the young chef at The Duke/la Favourita. When I went to visit, he was quietly sitting at the end of the bar having a bite to eat. Lawrence has been the chef at The Duke/laFavourita for the past 3 months. Before he worked for Aurora, the owner, he was at the Thai garden restaurant for the past 3 years.  He was a bit shy to talk about himself but his coworker, Michelle piped in and said “He’s super nice guy – always happy to serve and help with the customers.”
