Top chefs: Meet Dominique Crenn
30 June 2022 - Uqonic Chefs
Top chef Dominique Crenn’s list of achievements is long: 3 MICHELIN Stars, winner of the World’s 50 Best Icon Award, James Beard Foundation Awards of Best Chef, two restaurants in San Francisco, and an inspiring episode in the successful Netflix series ‘Chef’s Table’. Crenn refers to herself as a rebel chef, and we are so proud to have her on board. Meet Dominique Crenn: one of the world’s top chefs.
As the co-owner and chef of Atelier Crenn, Dominique Crenn has attracted food lovers worldwide. In her view, the establishment does not carry her name. To her, it’s her father’s name decorating the restaurant’s walls (like his paintings adorn the interior), while at the same time honouring her French background. The restaurant was awarded its first MICHELIN Star within a year after opening.
If you can experience her ode to culinary poetry (she calls it: poetic culinaria), expect to taste the chef’s heritage with iconic dishes with abadone (marine snails), wagyu meat, caviar, and more - in the most delicious and aesthetically appealing way.
In 2015, top chef Dominique Crenn opened her second restaurant: petit in name but grand in wine offering and small accompanying bites. Described as light and very French, Petit Crenn is a wine bar that serves you top-quality oysters and champagne, quiche and salad, tarte Normande and other carefully sourced and prepared dishes. But visitors may be surprised because the menu is ever-changing while its authentic French character remains.
