About Nicolas Fanucci

Born and raised in Cannes France, Nicolas grew up surrounded by his large Franco-Italian family. A lunch or a dinner at his home was always an experience. Without surprise, he entered the hospitality business in his late teens starting to work from the bottom and learn his craft from the best in the business. Nicolas has worked for more than three decades in numerous landmark European and American establishments including Roger Verge’s, Le Moulin de Mougin, Chef Alain Ducasse’s Le Louis XV, Ninety Park lane in London, La Grenouille and Le Cirque 2000 in New York City. Most recently, Nicolas was the General Manager at Bouchon Bistro in Beverly Hills prior to that; he was the managing partner at Le Bec Fin in Philadelphia. From 2005 to 2012, Nicolas served as a General Manager for The French Laundry where under his stewardship, the restaurant received three star rating from French-based Michelin Guide, top ranking in the World’s 50 Best Restaurant and inclusion in Zagat’s Top 10 most popular Restaurant in the Bay Area. Today, Nicolas is starting his own restaurant this summer in Malibu. Nicolas Eatery will be serving regional cuisine in a casual and welcoming atmosphere. He lives in Beverly Hills with his family
