Within the luxurious La Reserve Hotel and Spa, Jerome Banctel heads Le Gabriel, overlooking the Champs-Elysées garden. Coming from Brittany, the chef adds a few local touches to his Parisian menus.

Banctel got his start working for the likes of Alain Senderens at highly regarded restaurants such as Le Crillon and L’Ambroisie. His style is the epitome of French cuisine, although his time in Japan is evident with a hint of Asian touches as well.

His work earned him two Michelin stars.
