Yannick Alléno (born 16 December 1968) is a French chef who operates the restaurants Pavillon Ledoyen and L'Abysse in Paris and Le 1947 in Courchevel. He currently holds nineteen Michelin stars .


Born on 16 December 1968 in Puteaux, Yannick Alléno studied at the Lycée Santos-Dumont [ fr] in Saint-Cloud. He began his career at the Royal Monceau working with Gabriel Biscay before joining the Hotel Sofitel Sèvres and working closely with chefs Roland Durand and Martial Henguehardm. After entering Drouant and studying under Chef Louis Grondard, he started the Scribe kitchens.

In 2003, the Hotel Le Meurice appointed Alléno chef de cuisine, where he stayed for 10 years. In 2008 he founded the restaurant Le 1947 at Cheval Blanc Courchevel, [1] and in July 2014 he took over the kitchens of Pavillon Ledoyen on the Champs-Elysées in Paris.

In 2008, with Florence Cane, he launched Le Groupe Yannick Alléno, [2] with clients in Saint-Tropez and Paris, at the Royal Mansour in Marrakech, at the One&Only The Palm in Dubai, at the Shangri-La in Beijing and in the 101 tower in Taipei. He also launched the magazine Yam, [3] and published in 2014 "Sauces Réflexion d'un cuisinier" [4] in which he described new methods of flavor extraction for sauces.

Alléno has received three Michelin stars for Pavillon Ledoyen, one for Le 1947, one for Stay in Seoul, and one for L'Abysse. [5]

In 2015, former staff of Pavillon Ledoyen, along with the CGT trade union, filed a suit in labour relations court accusing Alléno and second-in-command Sébastien Lefort of harassment and violent behavior including kicking one employee in the thigh. Alléno, Lefort and Cane denied the allegations. [6]
