A Michelin star for The Tsé Fung at La Réserve Geneva

Dish from The Tsé Fung at La Réserve Geneva
The 2017 Swiss edition of the legendary red guide has just published its full list and awarded chef Frank Xu for his celebrated cuisine, thereby propelling The Tsé Fung into the much-revered galaxy of Michelin-starred restaurants. This is the first distinction of its kind awarded to a Chinese restaurant in Switzerland.

Laurent Branover, General Manager at La Réserve Geneva commented, “The initial vision of owner Michel Reybier was to win over our clients, and now the world’s best guide is giving us a star. The entire team at La Réserve Geneva is incredibly proud.” 

He added, “Far from being the end of the journey, this reward marks the start of a story that will be about making Geneva an ambassador for supremely refined Chinese cuisine. Chef Frank Xu works tirelessly to create stunning new dishes and we are looking forward to launching some of these at the end of this week.”  

FRANK XU, A VIRTUOSO OF SUBTLE FLAVORS
Representing the third generation of a dynasty of cooks, Frank Xu’s cuisine is an high-end interpretation of Chinese gastronomy, renowned as one of the finest in the world.  He notably excels in offering new takes and twists on traditional Cantonese dishes and uses excellent products, well-mastered cooking times and clever texture effects to ensure plates that are as pleasing to the eye as they are to the palate.  His Peking-style roast duck served in two stages is his signature dish. In keeping with tradition, the chef is backed by his personal team including four master chefs, each responsible for their own specialty: woks, dim sums, grilling and carving.  

A COMET ON A STAR-STUDDED TRAIL
Frank Xu originally hails from Shenzhen and initially exercised his talents in Geneva.  With La Réserve Geneva since August 2015, it has taken him just over a year to gain this much-coveted recognition.    

“Canton and indeed China as a whole has found itself an incomparable ambassador in Frank Xu! His creations are authentic and delicious, meticulously put together with first-class products; the desserts in particular delight the taste buds and make a lasting impression… Beautiful views over the gardens and the lake”. MICHELIN Guide Inspectors

Thanks to this new distinction, each of La Réserve’s hotels now has a starred restaurant: Le Gabriel in Paris, La Voile in Ramatuelle, and now The Tsé Fung in Geneva  

Rates at La Réserve Geneva start from £436 (CHF550) per room, per night including breakfast.
