23 August, 2016
Claude Troisgros of Rio's Olympe restaurant will be the recipient of the The Diners Club® Lifetime Achievement Award 2016 at Latin America's 50 Best Restuarants sponsored by S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna next month, it has been announced.
French-born Troisgros has been at the forefront of French/Brazilian fusion at Olympe (formerly Restaurant Claude Troigras) since it opened in 1983. Last year it claimed 23rd spot in Latin America's 50 Best Restaurants.
The Diners Club® Lifetime Achievement Award "recognises the contribution, originality and imprint of a chef’s career," and was awarded last year to Enrique Olvera.
