The Pavillon and Laurent Eperon have received their first star from the MICHELIN Guide, a prestigious and globally recognized award for excellence.

BAL_Laurent EperonThe MICHELIN Guide is Europe’s oldest and best-known hotel and restaurant guide, awarding MICHELIN stars according to several categories, following anonymous evaluations and a rigorous set of criteria. The award sees them join 14 other esteemed restaurants, bringing the grand total to two three-stars, 19 two-stars, and 89 one-stars, the most Switzerland has ever had.

“This is an outstanding recognition that Chef Eperon has worked very hard to achieve,” says Andrea Kracht, sixth-generation owner of the Baur au Lac. “We are extremely proud of him and also see this as a testament to our passion and commitment as a whole to always offer the best in service and hospitality.”

Chef Eperon has been creating fresh and dynamic contemporary cuisine with Baur au Lac since 2009. His 21st century interpretation of classic haute cuisine features the artful combination of traditional ingredients and flavors with innovative techniques and presentation. In addition, Chef Eperon and the Pavillon hold 17 Gault Millau points, one of the most influential restaurant guides of French origin apart from the MICHELIN Guide.

Travelers and locals alike have enjoyed the Pavillon since 1917. The former summer restaurant was refurbished in 2009 by renowned architect Pierre-Yves Rochon. Its new design, constructed almost entirely of glass, incorporates nature into every season and complements the modern and innovative cuisine. The Pavillon is open from Monday to Friday and on Saturday evenings, and can accommodate up to 64 guests. Special menus are now available for the upcoming festive season.
