The restaurant has announced the news this morning. It is now official, Chef Nicolas Paciello is now in charge of the pastry proposition at Le Fouquet’s Parisian and international locations. The 34 years old chef is taking on his new role starting September 9.
After years spent proving his worth among French and Parisian institutions — from Fauchon to Le Crillon, from Prince de Galles to La Scène — the French chef will be heading to Le Fouquet’s. In fact, experience wise, Paciello has worked with the likes of Cyril Lignac, Benoit Couvrant or Christophe Adam. He has hence proven he could assist the Hexagon’s best high end eateries, which he will now be doing from his Champs-Elysées location.
The youngster will be bringing freshness and modernity to an establishment that loves to play with eras and etiquettes. In France, Paciello is considered as one of the very best chefs in the pastry industry. His playful approach to desserts make him the ideal prospect for Le Fouquet’s new chapter.
