How Many Restaurants Does Yannick Alléno Run?

A master of modern cuisine whose restaurants have received multiple Michelin stars, Yannick Alléno may be best known for his trio of restaurants in Paris. The Pavillon Ledoyen serves as the home for Alléno Paris, a three-Michelin-star fine dining experience; L'Abysse, a two-Michelin-star sushi counter; and Pavyllon, a one-Michelin-star restaurant. All three are examples of Michelin-starred restaurants in Paris that live up to the hype. Outside of Paris, he is the culinary genius behind La Table de Pavie at the Hotel de Pavie in Saint-Emilion, a restaurant which has earned two Michelin stars. The food Alléno created at Le 1947 à Cheval Blanc, a restaurant at a hotel in Courchevel, France, has earned great acclaim and three Michelin stars.

There's more to his restaurant empire than these several restaurants, though. The number of businesses he actually operates seems to be ever changing. With Le 1947 à Cheval Blanc having closed in April 2023, the chef runs seven restaurants in France. In addition to his other Parisian ventures, Alléno operates a more casual burger place called Père et Fils and a bar-restaurant called Allénotheque. He also revamped the menu for the caviar-focused Prunier Victor-Hugo. Overseas, he runs six more restaurants, but, as of this writing, that number will soon change.

The chef's latest culinary projects

Yannick Alléno has become an international restauranteur, sharing his culinary vision in parts of the world other than France. He has exported his Pavyllon concept to Monaco, opening a place at Monte Carlo's Hermitage Hotel. In another hotel collaboration, Alléno created three restaurants, ZestStay, and 101, for the One&Only The Palm resort in Dubai. He also has another Stay at the Signiel Seoul Hotel in Seoul, South Korea, one of the world's best-kept secret travel destinations. In addition, he operates the hotel's lounge and pastry salon. Alléno previously operated the restaurant at the Royal Mansour in Marrakech, but he parted ways with the hotel in 2022.

For summer 2023, Alléno is exporting his Pavyllon concept to England for the first time. This venture marks the famed modernist chef's first partnership with the luxury hotel brand Four Seasons. His restaurant will be part of the Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane. While the restaurant's menu will draw inspiration from Alléno's original Pavyllon restaurant in Paris, the menu will feature British influences as well. Once this restaurant opens, Alléno will operate an impressive 15 venues to his credit, but with the way he keeps growing his business, he probably won't stay at this number for long.
