Set in its original colonial décor from the 1920's, La Table du Chef is a subtle journey into fine crafts, paintings, culinary and winemaking arts. Lovers of haute cuisine are invited to hunt for traces left by the hand gestures embedded into many aspects of the decoration of the restaurant.
This story appealed to Michelin-starred chef Alain Dutournier who selected La Table du Chef to bring his art of haute cuisine. Chef Alain now personifies the soul of La Table du Chef and his hands are the expression of the highest culinary art. Together with his talented Vietnamese Resident Chef, Dao Van Son, he brings to La Table du Chef the highest standard of excellence in French cuisine, with a touch of Vietnamese taste.
After 40 years as a Chef, Alain Dutournier is now considered among France’s most prominent figure in French gastronomy and is a regular guest on TV shows. At the helm of the renown Carré des Feuillants restaurant in Paris, he personifies the authentic cuisine of French “terroirs”. Born in the south-western region, he likes to include in his dishes product from his region such as foie gras, truffle or duck confit. His wish to share his immense know-how in Hanoi is a tribute to a country he enjoys considerably.
In this artistic atmosphere, gastronomes will have a chance to discover an exceptional menu. The exquisite dishes are carefully paired with the most refined selection of wines to create a memorable culinary experience in the heart of Hanoi's French quarter.
The wine menu proposes 600 labels from the most famous winemakers of the world, a majority of French wines, as well as wonderful discoveries from Alain Dutournier, all stored in the open cellar on site."
