    « I dream up my recipes by bringing ideas together and drawing on the vicissitudes of life, playing with all the permutations and turning them upside down…  » 
    - Christophe Hardiquest

     

    His work in the kitchen is one of daily improvisation, unbeholden to rules or boundaries.

    His creativity is free of all constrains. His inspiration is spontaneous.

    The fleeting nature of a moment, the surprise of an unexpected product, the association of flavours and the freshness of produce all impact his work.

    He doesn’t intellectualise cooking, he just does it. Each dish is simply to be savoured and shared, without bringing to mind the technique behind it.

    His cooking reflects his nature. It evolves, explores, transcends, but always with the same driving force: each ingredient is chosen and prepared with the utmost care in order to attain dizzying heights of flavour and sensation.

    Maître d'hôtel

    « Like a tightrope walker high up in the air of whom one asks the exact time… »

     

    In the dining room, Jonathan Gillet is the chef’s right-hand man.

    With a wealth of international experience, notably at Mugaritz, for several years now Gillet has worked alongside chef Christophe Hardiquest in a relationship of unparalleled trust and complicity.

    Naturally enthusiastic and curious, he works like an acrobat, skilfully blending the rigour required of a maître d’hôtel with a remarkable sensitivity that charms guests.

    His unique personality and attention to detail are also evident in his signature style: his omnipresent bow tie isn’t worn around his neck, but pinned to his lapel.

    “Talented newcomers need to be given responsibility”

    Naturally, the chef applies this philosophy to his kitchen brigade and lieutenants.

    The higher the mountain, the deeper the valley.
    This proverb is to Adrien Cunnac what his Alsatian heritage is to his intuitive understanding of cooking. Adrien has naturally good taste. With his subtle balance of tenacity and extreme sensitivity, he has worked alongside chef Christophe Hardiquest for several years. 

    In a kitchen brigade that consistently requires stability, strength and reliability, Max Paris is the ideal hands-on man. Fearless, discreet and perfectionist, he simply takes care of business. 

  • Michel de Muynck

    Head Sommelier

    Michel de Muynck

    Head Sommelier

    That the divine bottle is Michel De Muynck’s vocation is a redundant statement.
    For him, wine and the pleasure of sharing it are inextricably linked.
    He takes diners on extraordinary journeys, offering a dazzling array of libations:  breathtaking vintage wines, organic wines, Portuguese favourites, innovative beers…

    He has won numerous national and international awards for “best sommelier”, but his greatest reward comes on a daily basis: the faithful, warm relationships he enjoys with “his” winegrowers.

    His encounter with chef Christophe Hardiquest was decisive. The two men speak the same language and share the same desires. Their relationship is one of absolute trust.

  • Stéphanie Hardiquest

    General Manager

    Stéphanie Hardiquest

    General Manager

    Any chef’s wife will tell you (albeit with varying degrees of openness): when you marry a chef, you marry not only a man, but a restaurant as well.

    And Stéphanie, as befits her character, did much more than just marry her chef.

    Bon Bon’s distinctive style is her doing. Its atmosphere – that’s her as well. The perfect counterpart to her alter ego in the kitchen, she manages the restaurant. Day after day, she challenges, thinks, adapts, supports, anticipates, moves things forward, and of course, motivates the chef and his team to constantly give their best and surpass themselves.
