Dear Friends,

We had been expecting it for a few days without really believing it: France is reconfining itself.
This historic pandemic is shaking up our lives personally, professionally and socially.
And of course the life of our restaurants, our Grandes Tables.
Now is the time for solidarity, respect and commitment to health and safety, while we await for better days.

Dear friends,

When many European countries are restricting restaurant hours or even closing them as in Belgium, we would like with my fellow members of the board to say how much we care about the dire situation many of our members are faced with. We’re also thinking of all restaurateurs who have to deal with this enormous and unprecedented challenges. We would also have in mind our Customers who keep showing us so much support, demonstrating the strength of fine dining. We’re left optimistic about our future and we keep faith to face this uncertain times.

Dear friends,

These is an historic time. A time when panic can overcome reason. Many of us around the world are being impacted by this unprecedented health crisis. And all of you restaurateurs are among the first to be affected.
It is with great emotion that we think of all our friendly members in Italy, China, Belgium, Spain, France, the United States and all over the world who have had to close their establishments. We hope that this crisis will give rise to new projects and new ideas. But for now, we send you all the courage we can to overcome this situation. “We are at war”, but we will continue to create. Trust that light can come out of the darkest events…

The price 2018

In the heart of the Medina, and against the backdrop of Le Musée des Confluences, the association revealed the list of the 2018 winners of its awards for excellence.

The great restaurant

The great restaurants of that time embraced the same principles we still recognise today. It was simply less culinary and more celebratory. It was a place designed for fun and to be seen in while enjoying simple dishes. Salads and modest dressings still appeared on these menus.
Beginning in the 1960s, a new generation of chefs would change the status quo and reinvent this restaurant model. Their names were Bocuse, Guérard, Troisgros and Senderens, and they effectively reinvented this profession.
