Chef's retirement costs restaurant a star
Wednesday 20 January 1993
The central London restaurant was first awarded three stars in 1982. Its proprietor, Albert Roux, had been one of only two chefs to boast three Michelin stars. The other was his brother, Michel, whose Waterside Inn at Bray, Berkshire, retains the three stars it won in 1986. Now Michel has been joined on three stars by Pierre Koffmann, of La Tante Claire in Chelsea, who is a former protege of the Roux brothers, having worked for them at Le Gavroche.
A spokesperson for Michelin said that since consistency was one of the guide's primary concerns, it was decided to withdraw one of Le Gavroche's stars to indicate the retirement of the proprietor from its day-to-day running.
