Welcome to Essential by Christophe

As a cuisinier for 35 years, my career was informed by

the lavish restaurants that came before me. Now, what

brings me the most joy is bringing to you an experience

enlightened by my sensibility - removing the unnecessary,

and allowing the simplicity of the dish to shine.

Beautiful ingredients and vibrant sauces with French

technique highlight my vision of dining, which we are

delighted to present to you. Through exemplary hospitality,

allow us to guide you towards the refinement of cuisine.
