French Master Chef Johnny Letzter “Le Boeuf Mode” at Lutèce! Chef Letzter is coming out from retirement for a special Lunch & Dinner on Thursday 8th June 2017

Johnny Letzter started his Chef de Cuisine career at the restaurant Zimmer 1* Michelin in Strasbourg in the early 70’s, this is where Romain Bapst started as an apprentice.

Chef Johnny for over 35 years ran “la Taverne Moninger” a large Brasserie next to the Cathedral and the award-winning “Restaurant le Boeuf Mode” in the old part of Stras- bourg “La Petite France”. At le Boeuf Mode Chef Johnny was well-known for his inventive & creative cooking around beef and seafood as in that time it was “premiere”.

Speaking to Mr Letzter some time ago, Romain suggested Mr Letzter come out from retirement for one day and show off to Australia the cuisine that was not so old fashion some 30 years or so ago. With a great camaraderie in place after all the years, we are sure that the lunch and dinner will be a fantastic event.
