ATLANTA - Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead is pleased to formally welcome Executive Chef Christophe Truchet as the leader of the hotel’s culinary team. Chef Christophe is responsible for the property’s culinary and banquet operations, menu development, concept and programming for the hotel’s signature restaurant, Café & Bar, and oversees in-room dining.
“We are delighted to have Chef Christophe at the heart of Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead’s culinary operation,” said Kerry Hing, general manager of Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead. “Chef Christophe brings extensive experience to his role from our sister property in Beverly Hills and has worked for a roster of globally acclaimed chefs. He will continue to elevate our hotel’s food and beverage program delivering an exceptional culinary experience for guests within the Waldorf Astoria portfolio.”
Chef Christophe joins Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead with nearly 20 years of experience.
