Intercontinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort, Vietnam has appointed Michelin-starred chef Pierre Gagnaire to lead its French Dining restaurant La Maison 1888. Opened in 2012, the restaurant has gained a fine reputation as the number one gastronomic destination in Vietnam with its blend of exquisite French cuisine, antique designs, and breathtaking views. Private dining rooms are uniquely themed with different fictional personalities of colonial French-Eurasian families, such as the Accountant’s Room, the Traveler’s Room, and Le Boudoir de Madame. From aged whiskey to vintage champagne and wine, guests can enjoy the restaurant’s extensive list of drinks picked by the sommelier before being escorted to their dinner tables, or have them at the terrace overlooking the resort and the East Sea.
“The quality and vision of this restaurant is very special,” Gagnaire said. “The InterContinental and I share a vision. It is not just mine. I bring my style of cooking but together we create the experience. The menu is a link between my philosophy, my style of cooking and this country. The culinary culture here in Vietnam is precise and elegant. We must pay homage to the history. It has a real style of its own and this is woven into the story of La Maison 1888.”
