Odette

3 Michelin Stars.

18th on the World’s 50 Best Restaurants.

A Modern French restaurant located at the National Gallery Singapore.

Odette is named in tribute of Chef Julien’s grandmother; one of the greatest influences in his life. The restaurant is designed to reflect her belief in always ensuring that the fundamental pleasures of enjoying a meal are delivered in the most thoughtful, welcoming and hospitable manner.

“I owe everything that I am to my family, especially my grandmother, Odette. She showed me how the most remarkable dishes can come from the purest ingredients and taught me the importance of adding that ‘little something’ to create dishes that excite the palate and fill the heart. Her devotion to people and ability to demonstrate love through food continue to inspire the Odette experience.”

Chef

Prior to establishing Odette, Julien won over diners and critics globally during his four-year tenure at JAAN at Swissotel the Stamford, Singapore. The fine dining restaurant received numerous accolades under his leadership, including 11th place on the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2015 and 74th on the World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2015 long list. He was also named Chef of the Year at the World Gourmet Series Awards of Excellence 2014.

Julien’s first venture into the kitchen under the legendary Michel Bras in Laguiole instilled in him a respect for the integrity of each ingredient and a commitment to showcasing its brilliant flavours. He then moved to Durtol in the heart of Auvergne, where he began working for Maitre Cuisinier de France Bernard Andrieux who continued to reinforce the beliefs his upbringing had instilled in him. After a stint in the French West Indies Julien landed in London, where he was sous chef to Antonin Bonnet at Michelin-starred Mayfair restaurant, The Greenhouse. He then moved to Singapore, where he has resided since 2011 as Chef de Cuisine
