Meet the Chef

Picture of Danielle Alvarez.

Danielle Alvarez

Danielle champions a produce-driven philosophy. Raised in Miami by Cuban-born parents, Danielle never had chef intentions, but grew up cooking with her grandma and mum. Enrolling in cooking school, Danielle decided to pursue her passion for food, completing an internship at The French Laundry in California. Their seasonal approach to cooking proved very instrumental in her overall development as a chef. A holiday to Australia then turned into an exciting new opportunity with Merivale.

Lovely venue, super-attentive and welcoming staff, comprehensive wine list, and a varied menu but my gosh have the prices gone up since Merrivale took over management. Sad to see their signature fish and chips deleted from the menu too.
