Jean-Louis Gerin

A Note from Chef Jean-Louis:

After nearly thirty wonderful years in Greenwich, I have accepted the position of Vice President of Culinary Operations and Executive Chef at the New England Culinary Institute (NECI) in Montpelier, Vermont. This is an extraordinary opportunity for me at an outstanding teaching school for talented young chefs. I will be able to use all of my management skills and experience at NECI, both coaching the talented chef/instructor force and continuing to innovate in French cuisine.

I first came to Greenwich for Guy Savoy in 1983. The restaurant on Lewis Street became Restaurant Jean-Louis in 1985. Greenwich is our home and our two children have grown up here. For at least the next year I will be spending most weekdays in Vermont and weekends in Greenwich where we will keep our home.
