Crissier, near Lausanne, is world famous to food lovers for its Hôtel de Ville, with 3 Michelin stars and19/20 points in the GaultMillau. Since Frédy Girardet – the ‘best chef in the world’ – arrived in 1965, the restaurant has been a leader in French-style fine dining.
Franck Giovannini has been in charge of the kitchen at the Restaurant de l’Hôtel de Ville since the start of 2016, having succeeded Benoît Violier, for whom he worked as a chef. He heads up a team of more than twenty highly qualified and experienced people, each of whom he knows very well. Having shared 20 years of friendship with Benoît Violier in Crissier, working alongside him in the service of culinary excellence, he will henceforth be responsible for designing the menus in harmony with the changing seasons, thus continuing the work done by Frédy Girardet, Philippe Rochat and Benoît Violier.
