Céline and Gaëtan
the passion of conviction
A native of Le Mans, France, chef Gaëtan Gentil honed his skills in a number of Michelin-starred establishments, notably alongside chefs Yannick Alléno when he took over Cheval Blanc, Emmanuel Renaut and then Denis Fetisson, whom he followed to open his two restaurants: L'Amandier and La Place de Mougins, where he was sous-chef. After a spell at the Crillon with chef Jean-François Piège, Gaëtan Gentil succeeded chef David Toutain to take over the reins at Agapé Substance in Paris.
In Lyon, with his partner Céline Boinon, they opened their own restaurant, Prairial, in 2015, affirming their responsible and committed cuisine. Sommelier, dining room manager and the restaurant's veritable conductor, Céline brings a sparkling dynamism to Gaëtan's cuisine. This complementary approach to demanding standards was rewarded with a Michelin star in 2016, and sustainable gastronomy with a green star.
After eight years on the rue Chavanne in Lyon's 1st arrondissement, they are now inviting you to take the PRAIRIAL experience even further, in a place they have imagined from the ground up, driven by the desire to please, transparently.
