Focus on gastronomy in the Canton of Vaud

Oct 8, 2018

Restaurant owners are constantly looking for innovation and excellence in order to be able to offer their guests new gourmet experiences. The renowned French gastronomy guide Gault&Millau (GM) awards the best chefs for the quality and originality of their cuisine.

This year, the Gault&Millau has 101 Vaud restaurants listed with a total of 1423 points. At the restaurant “Hôtel de Ville” in Crissier near Lausanne, Franck Giovannini is the fourth celebrity chef in a row to manage the restaurant’s excellent cuisine, proving his success with 19 Gault&Millau points as well as 3 Michelin stars for 2019. He continues in the footsteps of his predecessors Benoît Violier, Philippe Rochat, and Fredy Girardet, adding his focus on regional, healthy, fresh and light dishes. www.restaurantcrissier.com
