Tom Moxon will return to Bone Daddies as Executive Group Chef
London ramen giants Bone Daddies have confirmed the return of original head chef and ‘ramen guru’ Tom Moxon to the group.
Moxon, who helped launch the very first Bone Daddies in Soho back in 2012, left the brand in late 2019, but will make his return this month in the position of executive group chef. He will oversee the menu development at the group’s seven sites, as well as the delivery arm of the business.
Ahead of his return this month, Moxon commented: “It was made clear when I left at the back end of 2019 that the door was open should I want to return at some point. Of course at that stage nobody knew we were going to experience a global pandemic and almost complete shut down of the UK’s hospitality industry.
"My original plan was to jump on my motorbike with a tent and just keep driving east, climb a few mountains and see where the adventure took me. Then Covid hit, so I ended up moving back to my hometown in Essex and spending quality time with friends and family, so it wasn’t all bad, but when I got the call from Demetri to come back to Bone Daddies, it was a bit of a no-brainer for me to say yes.
"I’ve got some new ideas to shake the menu up a bit and maybe bring back some old school Bone Daddies’ classics too – I do often think about our 'Instant' Korean Army Ramen dish, which was one of my favourite creations back in the early days, so perhaps that will make a return appearance in the not so so distant future! And we’ve got some awesome guest chef collabs and other stuff lined-up to celebrate the 10th birthday next year. 2022 is going to be big for Bone Daddies!”
Bone Daddies was founded by Ross Shonhan and Demetri Tomazos, with Tom Moxon onboard as head chef. Ross stepped away from the business in early 2020, leaving Demetri to take the brand forward.
