Franck Savoy, son of culinary legend Guy Savoy, is taking on the role of director of food and beverage for Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Savory will now execute property initiatives throughout all restaurants, further developing excellent customer service. In addition, Savoy will be working closely to Restaurant Guy Savoy’s new manager, Alain Alpe, who joined the restaurant team six months after its opening in 2006.
Franck Savoy will oversee exquisite restaurants including Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill, Bradley Ogden, Rao’s, Payard Pi¢tisserie & Bistro and Beijing Noodle No. 9.”We selected Savoy because he is the true definition of customer service,” says Gary Selesner, president, Caesars Palace. “His pedigree, charm, and personality, as well as his passion to inspire service makes him a fortuitous addition to our team.”
With Savoy’s career beginning 10 years ago at the Hotel Hyatt Regency in France, he had learned the aspects of working in the front-of-the-house. While moving onto the restaurant business, he worked at Les Bouquinistes and Chiberta in Paris. While obtaining extraordinary culinary knowledge, Savoy opened up Restaurant Guy Savoy in May 2006. His restaurant was named Esquire’s “Best New Restaurants,” and Gayot’s “Top 40 Restaurants in the U.S.” Los Angeles Times gave the restaurant an amazing 3-1/2 stars while Newsweek International called it “the best restaurant in Las Vegas and one of the finest anywhere.” Only after an astonishing two years, Restaurant Guy Savoy won the AAA Five Diamond Award and the Wine Spectator Grand Award.
