Located on St. Barts, Hôtel Le Toiny’s Restaurant Le Gaïac is widely regarded as one of the finest restaurants in the Caribbean. In July 2014, Chef Jean-Christophe Gille will take the helm of the iconic property, further adding to its impressive resume. Jean-Christophe will bring nearly 25 years of culinary expertise earned at some of the world’s best restaurants, including several Michelin-starred establishments. He defines his dishes as modern, colorful, and well balanced in terms of texture, acidity and preparation methods.
Restaurant Le Gaiac features a refined and sophisticated menu showcasing an innovative blend of French and local influences. Dishes created under Chef Jean-Christophe’s direction include new offerings such as Mahi Mahi served in Carpaccio and ported meat, with sticks of vegetable pickles; Beef fillet served Rossini style with potato truffle risotto and an espuma of horseradish; and a 70% chocolate soufflé with whiskey ice-cream. Classic offerings remain with Restaurant Le Gaiac’s famed spaghetti with black truffles, prepared tableside in a wheel of parmesan cheese, as well as fresh Caribbean lobster prepared Thermidor style.
