Renowned for his culinary skills and his impeccable standards, Thomas Keller has established a collection of restaurants that set a new paradigm within the hospitality industry. In 1994, he opened The French Laundry in Yountville, a wine country landmark that has been widely hailed as the finest restaurant in the world. He followed that ten years later with Per Se, which brought the chef’s distinctive style to Manhattan. Today, both restaurants enjoy 3-star Michelin ratings, making Keller the first and only American-born chef to hold multiple three-star ratings from the prestigious dining guide. casual dining restaurants include Bouchon (Beverly Hills, Yountville, Las Vegas), Bar Bouchon (Beverly Hills) Bouchon Bakery (Yountville, Las Vegas, NYC), and Ad Hoc (Yountville). This program has been sponsored by Fairway Market.
