Michel Jacob at Le Crocodile Restaurant

Bio

Following his apprenticeship, Michel worked with Pierre Gaertner at the celebrated Aux Armes de France in Ammerschwir. Further travels took him to Ireland at the famed Ashford Castle (then owned by the Guiness Family), Lausanne, Switzerland, and a stage in Belgium and Corsica. Impeccable service with flair, never pretense or fanfare. This fine dining French restaurant blends traditional French cooking with innovative Westcoast style.
