Davis Yu is the man leading the team at one of Melbourne’s best creative houses, Maison Davis.
Davis has been described by a string of seeming contradictions: relaxed and assured, yet supremely driven to succeed; quirky and individual in the way he lives his life. His love of art, travel, photography, food and fashion has been the perfect fusion in developing some of Melbourne’s most celebrated eateries.
The passionate 22 year old opened his first restaurant of now three, The Millswyn in 2011. Following its success and his desire to keep Melbourne diners always at the forefront of what’s happening around the world, Davis opened the vastly different Mexican haunt Touché Hombre, which is a mash-up that pits Melbourne street and Mexican taco culture together.
Most recently Davis and his team have celebrated the launch of Claremont Tonic in South Yarra, which delivers a pan-Asian menu built on the sharp, vibrant flavours complimented by thoughtful interiors injecting lifestyle and culture into design.
