That is why even during a weekday lunch, Epicure le Bristol restaurant was packed. This is where the talented Monsieur Frechon comes in the picture. With his talent and expertise, the MOF chef is responsible for a room full of satisfied customers.
The techniques illustrated throughout his dishes were immaculate, as the high level of difficulty was apparent. It was a balanced meal which had all the components that make up culinary greatness.
Eric Frechon has a little office inside the kitchen where he creates his menu, in which he gladly seated us. Even though he is a very busy man, he spared some time to meet with a chatty guest. But he didn't speak English very well so it was hard to communicate even with the help of a translator that he kindly provided. His sweet smile and friendly manners made him so likeable nevertheless, even to complete strangers.
The celebrated chef belongs in the few, the proud, the elite. He is chef royalty. But he is down to earth and very friendly.
