l’escale, one of Greenwich, Connecticut’s finest restaurants, welcomed Executive Chef Frederic Kieffer to oversee its kitchen beginning in April. Bringing over twenty years of fine dining experience, Chef Kieffer, who served as the opening chef of l’escale, returns to invigorate the restaurant with his passion for the South of France and his talent for incorporating the highest quality seasonal and local ingredients. Joining Chef Kieffer is a new team including Chef de Cuisine Henri Donneux, Veteran Pastry Chef Wendy Young Laurent and Director of Operations David Fletcher.

A native of Paris and longtime resident of Fairfield County, Executive Chef Frederic Kieffer is known for creating his own interpretations of classic, simple dishes, Chef Kieffer is also a vigorous proponent of working with local purveyors and supporting sustainable agriculture. When asked about how he feels with this new change Chef Kieffer responded “I am very much looking forward to returning to l’escale and to working with this incredible new team. The setting of this restaurant has always been spectacular and we have worked very hard to craft a wonderful new menu that will truly be representative of the flavors and ingredients of the South of France.”
