“French cuisine handed down from father to son”
Maître de Maison
- Emmanuel Landré
Founded in 1967 by Albert and Michel Roux, Le Gavroche quickly became a benchmark for fine dining à la française in London’s exclusive Mayfair. Continuing the family tradition, Michel Roux Jr. took over in the kitchen in 1991. A new look, a new burst of creativity, combined with the incomparable recipes, such as the Soufflé Suissesse, which cemented the restaurant’s international renown. Chef Michel Roux Jr. showcases the very best of French produce with his seasonal cuisine, with dishes that feature Challans duck and lamb from the Pyrenees. Ava Gardner, Charlie Chaplin and Robert Redford have all dined here, the clientele being as brilliant as the menu.
