Nathan Davies Biography – Nathan Davies Wiki
Nathan Davies is the head chef at SY23 restaurant in Aberystwyth, Wales. The 32-year-old has lived in Wales since he was 6 – his father and grandfather are Welsh Italians.
Nathan has worked at some of Wales’s finest restaurants – with Steven Terry at The Hardwick in Abergavenny and as Head Chef at Ynshir under Gareth Ward for 4 years which is considered the finest restaurant in Wales and ranked in the top five of the UK’s restaurants in the Good Food Guide.
In 2019, Nathan opened SY23 in Aberystwyth with an ethos of using the finest local and foraged produce cooked simply over a fire. Nathan takes regional produce very seriously trying to source a lot of his ingredients from the SY23 postcode – from meat to flour to the wood he puts on the fire to cook with.
SY23 was the recipient of One MICHELIN Star in the MICHELIN Guide Great Britain & Ireland 2022, as well as winner of the 2022 MICHELIN ‘Opening of the Year’ award.
Michelin Guide judges said of Aberystwyth’s SY23: “Fun, contemporary SY23 brings a breath of fresh air to this quaint seaside town in West Wales.
“Affable chef and part-owner Nathan Davies is an Ynyshir alumnus and is supported by a friendly, enthusiastic service team.
“Sleek Sitka Spruce tables come together with burnished tan leather chairs and a moody blue colour scheme to make a statement visually, while the buzzy ground floor bar and vibrant soundtrack contribute to the lively atmosphere.
“The open kitchen takes centre stage in the dining room, with the charcoal grill used to great effect throughout the 9-course menu, which sees original, modern dishes served to every guest at the same time. European and Asian influences lead the way, and foraging, pickling and fermenting all play their part.”
