sofitel

The Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi is working on its reputation as the go-to spot for all things delicious in Hanoi. Most recently, Thibault Souchon joins the Metropole as director of food and beverage after a four-year stint at the Lotte Hotel Seoul. Souchon will be in charge of establishing Metropole's Le Beaulieu restaurant as one of the reigning French restaurants in Hanoi.

Souchon's claim to fame was the grand opening of the Pierre Gagnaire Seoul, a Michelin three-star restaurant. He plans to build on the creative concepts and promotions he initiated at the 14 restaurants and bars of the Lotte Hotel. Though is focus will remain fixed on French cuisine, his responsibilities extend to the traditions of Italy and Vietnam.
