Alexandre Gauthier – New Candidates 2023

Alexandre Gauthier

La Grenouillère

Alexandre Gauthier is at the forefront of creative fine dining, combined with a deep-rooted respect for technical accuracy and French cuisine. 

After working in a few famous French restaurants, he took over the family restaurant “La Grenouillère”, located near Montreuil-sur-Mer in the northern Pas-de-Calais region. 

“I was born a chef.”

“In 2003, I took over the family restaurant “La Grenouillère” near Montreuil-sur-Mer in the Pas-de-Calais region. There, I elaborate on a unique, authentic, signature cuisine. I humbly anchor it in my region, in the Côte d’Opale which I explore in all its aspects, natural and human. I offer a true French-rooted contemporary cuisine, unburdened by its convictions and its a priori.

In 2009, I entrusted the architect Patrick Bouchain with the makeover of the restaurant to modernize the place. My ambition is for La Grenouillère to be much more than a mere restaurant. La Grenouillère is a house of freedom and expression for those who live in it and live it with me.”

Alexandre Gauthier leaves his mark and expresses himself in a personal, copyrighted, bestial, delicate, green, and unbridled cuisine.

“I promote contemporary cuisine by offering my vision of a taste and a territory, which fully embraces who I am.”

“Being contemporary, keeping up with the times, is also about conserving with other worlds, receiving critical esteem, sending your cuisine beyond borders. La Grenouillère is a house for chefs, for sharing, and a house of freedom and expression.”

Alongside La Grenouillère, Alexandre opened two other restaurants in Montreuil-sur-Mer: In 2007 “Froggy’s Tavern” a place of life, a contemporary grill room… and in February 2015 “Anecdote”, a memory lane cuisine inspired by the map that Roland Gauthier, Alexandre’s father, drew upon his arrival at La Grenouillère in March 1979.
