Chef de Cuisine of The Royce at The Langham
PASADENA, Calif.- September 9, 2010 -The Langham Huntington, Pasadena is pleased to announce that upon completion of its exciting renovation, the former Dining Room will re-open as The Royce, named after longtime owner and general manager of The Huntington Hotel, Stephen W. Royce. Scheduled for a soft opening in mid October 2010, The Royce will feature New American cuisine by Chef David Féau, formerly with The Patina Group. Chef Féau’s menu will be comprised of lighter California fare prepared with classic influences and refined French technique, emphasizing fresh seasonal produce and the best quality products from around the world. The Royce will begin accepting dinner reservations October 22.
Chef David Féau grew up cooking in the kitchen with his mother in France and earned his degree in classic cuisine at L'Ecole Hoteliere, Helene Boucher in his hometown of Le Mans. After honing his culinary and managerial skills under the guidance of famed chef Guy Savoy in Paris, he served as Executive Chef of Le Miravile, a Michelin Star rated restaurant in Paris, and then openedLatitude 40 & Version Sud in Paris, where he also was the Executive Chef. Following his success in Paris, Chef Féau made his way to New York to oversee one of the city's longtime favorites, Lutèce. After revitalizing the flagship restaurant in New York, Féau spearheaded the development of the sister restaurant in Las Vegas, earning both locations multiple four-star ratings from Mobil and Forbes Magazine. In 2006, Féau joined the Patina Group and became the Executive Chef for Café Pinot, bringing his vision of cuisine to downtown Los Angeles. After a year as Executive Chef, he became Corporate Executive Chef of Patina Restaurant Group’s west coast culinary operation.
Now as Chef de Cuisine of The Royce at The Langham, Chef Féau is poised to establish the restaurant as among the very best in Los Angeles.
“The Royce will be accessible fine dining at its best, and I want guests to feel completely at home when they walk through the doors,” said Chef Féau. “We will showcase the beauty and complex flavors of local produce and pure ingredients, and invite guests to experience the gastronomic wonders of true cooking,” he continued.
