#2 – Flying Fish Restaurant & Bar


Adam Hall is the Executive Chef of The Star Sydney’s Flying Fish.

This close connection to the food he and his family enjoyed together in his early years spurred Hall’s passionate commitment to using fresh local organic produce, native ingredients, sustainably caught seafood, and ethically raised meats in his dishes right from the beginning of his career in local cafes and even his first role at the Oaks Pacific Resort in Port Stephens.
