The french are know for their passion. Chef Sebastien Maillard is no exception as in his own words, he does not go to a “job” when he wakes up. He goes to his passion—for food and creating the most incredible experience for his guests every day.
Born a fifth generation cuisine, Sebastien believes he was destined to become a chef. His first teachers were his parents and remembers celebrating his first New Year’s Eve in a playpen in his father’s restaurant.
Le Lafayette is still very much a family restaurant. Sebastien’s sister, Valerie, is also heavily involved and his parents helped him run the restaurant until they retired in 2003.
Devoted to the culinary traditions of his homeland, Sebastien also strongly believes in drawing his ingredients from sources close to the restaurant, here in Florida, which gives his cuisine its unique identity.
