Brian James

Brian has spent most of his career working in Newcastle’s most iconic restaurants including 21 Queen Street and Barn Again Bistro.

Brian has been in charge of the kitchen and menus for over two years now and has brought his own style of fusion cookery to ARLO.  Brian’s menus blend traditional ingredients with Asian, Middle Eastern and South American flavours to create exciting and innovative dishes whilst also maintaining a well-balanced all day eating style.  Brian’s passion for Asian flavours developed whilst living in Australia and his love of global cuisine has evolved from his love of travel around the world.
