Arnaud Donckele, the best chef in the world is doubling up! The three Michelin star chef at La Vague d'Or at Cheval Blanc Saint-Tropez will sign the menu at the future gourmet hotel restaurant of Cheval Blanc Paris, scheduled to open in the first half of 2020 at Samaritaine, it has been announced.
Although we don't yet know the number of covers at the future address, we do know that Arnaud Donckele "will be present continuously for seven months of the year and at the annual reopening of Cheval Blanc Saint-Tropez - between mid-May and mid-October - he'll then divide himself between the two establishments with a more important presence in the Var ", specifies Le Point, which adds that "part of his brigade will go with him" to Paris.
On the cooking side, Arnaud Donckele's menu will feature the Ile-de-France. "In the background, the goal is obviously to get stars quickly with the dream of landing 3 macaroons like Cheval Blanc Saint-Tropez", adds the site. "To achieve this goal, Arnaud Donckele will be able to count on a formidable operational team: Olivier Lefebvre, director of hotel activities of LVMH; Christian Boyens,director of operations of urban hotels arriving from the Ritz Paris; Romain Meiran, director of Cheval Blanc Paris, who previously held the same position at Cheval Blanc Courchevel, and Édouard Delavaux, Operations Manager of Cheval Blanc Paris as he was also at Cheval Blanc Courchevel.
