I was 17 years old when I visited the USA for the first time, one of the best experience of my life at that time, so good that I just didn’t want to go back home…
Since this trip, my mind was set, I wanted to move to the USA !!
i moved from France to this area in 1991, I owned a beach concession in my home town which I sold, and started my life here, worked at le Refuge for 10 years where I learned the American way of the service industry. I opened Bistrot Lafayette with partners in 2001 and had a great venture for 12 years until our Chef/partner passed away after battling bone marrow cancer.
I took some time off and travelled, then 2013 till November 2016 I was hired by a big Corporation in DC to run one of their restaurant, that’s where I learned to apply my experience to a big volume restaurant.
It was now time to do something else so when I was approached and told about the Boat Club, I felt that it was the right thing to do.
I have been living in Old town for 20 + years and love it!
