Leung’s own contemporary interpretation of Chinese cuisine, with a modern approach to presentation, has caught the attention of numerous international restaurant critics, including Nina and Tim Zagat, creators and publishers of the highly respected Zagat Survey. Today, Jereme Leung is a renowned food and beverage concept services consultant. He established Jereme Leung Creative Concepts －J.L. after his own name to provide food service consulting for top restaurants around the world including the Dragon Hotel Hangzhou’s Grand Dragon Restaurant.
