L’Escale by Thierry Drapeau

Written by

A few times a year, Michelin-star chefs grace the shores of Vietnam with their gastronomic fare.

Yet except for the now closed La Maison 1888, no chefs of such ilk have brought their skills to Vietnam on a long-term basis.


Which means there is even more reason to celebrate the opening of L’Escale in Saigon’s Thao Dien,



The work of celebrated, two-star Michelin chef Thierry Drapeau, L’escale is a gourmet French restaurant that serves lunch and dinner, offering a wide variety of wines and the first walk-in cheese cellar in Vietnam. All dishes are created using top-quality ingredients, before being finished with an artistic flourish to create a fragrant, brightly coloured, ‘floral cuisine’.


L’Escale is open daily for lunch and dinner from 11.30am to 2pm and 5.30pm to 10.30pm. Seats are limited, so best make a reservation. The restaurant is at 90 Quoc Huong, Thao Dien, Q2, HCMC.
