Gastown’s Secret Location has announced Montgomery Lau will be their new executive chef. Chef Lau will lead a talented back-of-house team already comfortable pushing culinary boundaries and creativity.

Chef Lau comes to Secret Location from MARKET by Jean-Georges at the Shangri-La Hotel in Vancouver. Originally from Hong Kong, Lau has been overseeing MARKET since spring of 2012 and appointed Chef de Cuisine in 2013. In 2011 Lau represented B.C. and won gold at the Canadian National Chef Challenge Competition. His knowledge of international cuisine and local producers is an excellent fit for Secret Location’s adventurous Tasting Room. Diners can expect modern multicultural cuisine with an emphasis on authenticity.

Chef Lau is stepping into a position held by Chef Jefferson Alvarez since May 2013. Chef Alvarez brought amazing creativity and culinary expression to the Secret Location kitchen and the company wishes him well.

“Chef Alvarez is a unique talent and we wish him best of luck as he pursues personal interests and dreams,” says Secret Location founder Carey Melnichuk.

Secret Location combines a carefully curated retail store and unique Tasting Room. Recently selected to the top 10 list of concept stores by Vogue Paris, the flagship operation in historic Gastown is based on founder Carey Melnichuk’s global experiences and travels. Secret Location opened summer of 2012 and is opening a second retail-only venture, called SL, summer 2015 at the MacArthurGlen Designer Outlet at YVR.
