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
