Hospitality group rhubarb has appointed Warren Geraghty as culinary director.

Geraghty, who was previously group executive chef at Galvin Restaurants and director of Galvin Pub Co., will be responsible for the brigades of chefs, menu development and kitchen recruitment, induction and training.

He will oversee the launch of Vivi this summer at London’s Centre Point tower, as well as the development of the group’s first international restaurant at Hudson Yards in New York.

“This is a fantastic role and I am delighted to be joining at such an incredibly exciting time for rhubarb,” says Geraghty. “There is some real talent within the kitchen team at rhubarb and I look forward to nurturing and developing this further.”

Rhubarb managing director PB Jacobse adds: “We are truly delighted to welcome Warren to the rhubarb family. With rhubarb continuing to grow and our first international opening underway, Warren’s impressive career achievements and hospitality experience made him the obvious choice for the role.”

Geraghty has over 20 years of catering experience. As well as Galvin Restaurants and Galvin Pub Co., he has spent time at L’Escargot, Pied a Terre and Chez Nico.
