Identity

Gilles Epié has shaped his expertise and love of cooking in different restaurants : le Miravile (where he was the owner), la Petite Cour in Paris, as well as l’Orangerie in Los Angeles.

The culinary fusion of French-Californian dishes has enchanted many gourmets and personalities from around the world. The Chef is nicknamed the ‘Frenchy American’ and has cooked for many personalities. To name but a few: Frank Sinatra, Sophia Loren, the King of Sweden, Bruce Springsteen, Slash, Sharon Stone, Gregory Peck, Richard Gere, Elizabeth Taylor and Princess Diana.

In 2005, Gilles Epié accomplished his dream by acquiring the Citrus Etoile restaurant near the Champs-Elysées. After 10 years spent in the United States, he inspired his wife Elisabeth with his culinary mix. A challenge in a country where gastronomy is more than an art, he has been able to explore and import certain concepts such as steaming, Japanese sauces and condiments, crunchy vegetables, raw fish, marinade cooking… This ‘Californian American’ inspiration means a full and gourmet menu can be offered.
