Monaco rallies behind Alléno after son’s death

Monaco rallies behind Alléno after son’s death

By Cassandra Tanti - May 9, 2022

Michelin star Chef Yannick Alléno, who just opened the Pavyllon at the Hermitage Hotel, has lost his son in a tragic road accident in Paris.

24-year-old Antoine Alléno was stopped at traffic lights in the 7th arrondissement when he was struck by a speeding Audi RS6, which had reportedly been stolen shortly after 11pm. The victim died at the scene, while his passenger and the driver of a VTC were transported to hospital in a critical condition.

The driver, who was reportedly wanted by police to serve a prison sentence for drink driving, fled on foot before being apprehended by an off-duty policeman.

Antoine Alléno had trained as a chef under his father, who has held three-Michelin stars since 2007, and was embarking on his own bright career. He opened the restaurant Burger Père et Fils with his father last year.

“It is with deep sadness that Chef Yannick Alléno, his mother Isabelle, his brother Thomas, his family, as well as the teams of the Yannick Alléno Group, inform you of the death of their son, brother, colleague and friend, Antoine, victim of a road accident which occurred on the night of May 8 in Paris,” said his family in a press release. “In this painful period, the Alléno family and their loved ones are very sensitive to the benevolence and understanding of all, while respecting their privacy.”

Yannick Alléno joined the Société des Bains de Mer in Monaco at the start of 2021 to take the reins of the Vistamar at the Hôtel Hermitage. Just two weeks ago, the chef, who currently holds 13 stars, unveiled there the Monte-Carlo version of his famous Pavyllon restaurant.
