Appointed Executive Chef
At The Reverie Saigon, Café Cardinal in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
The French native recently joined the team after two years as head chef at Jardin Des Sens, a French restaurant by three-star Michelin chefs, Jacques and Laurent Pourcel. Prior to that he was sous chef de cuisine at Hotel Marinca & Spa by Chef MOF Jean Luc L'Hourre on the French island of Corsica.
Over the course of his career Pettini has also worked under other Meilleurs Ouvriers de France (MOF) chefs, one of the highest honors a chef can achieve in France, like MOF Frank Ferrigutti; and at Michelin-starred restaurants like La Bouitte by Chef Rene.
Café Cardinal opened just over five years ago when The Reverie Saigon made its grand debut in Ho Chi Minh City. The fine-dining French restaurant has been a popular foodie destination and Pettini will continue to build on that success.
