La Cantine du Faubourg has appointed chef Gilles Bosquet as the new executive chef of the Parisian restaurant brand.
Chef Bosquet’s achievements include winning a Michelin star for L’Auberge à la Bonne Idée in France within two years of joining, and opening Gordon Ramsay Fine Dining and Opal by Gordon Ramsay at the St. Regis Doha.
In his new role, Mauritian-born chef Bosquet will oversee La Cantine du Faubourg Dubai and 105 by La Cantine Ibiza, while supporting the group’s ongoing expansion.
Commenting on his new role, he said: “The company is growing, with great F&B projects forecasted. The owner, Rizwan Kassim, is young and driven, like the team.
“They have this French elegance yet keep it fresh and relaxed. Great attention is paid to detail; organisation is key, yet the element of fun remains.”
La Cantine du Faubourg Dubai opened in April 2015 in Jumeirah Emirates Towers, Dubai. The 1,300m2 restaurant can hold 250 Pax and employs 100 staff.
