A native Texan, Archambault's culinary roots run deep
July 27, 2018
Dallas’ most legendary luxury hotel and restaurant, Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek, is pleased to announce the appointment of Sebastien Archambault as executive chef. Archambault will oversee the cuisine and menus throughout the award-winning property, with emphasis on The Mansion Restaurant, a highly-acclaimed culinary icon in Texas.
A native Texan, born in Lubbock, Archambault’s culinary roots run deep, originating from his French family that has a strong love for cooking. His gastronomic passion started at an early age in Le Bugue, France, spending every weekend in the kitchen with his father in their family’s restaurant.
He furthered his culinary craft by attending and graduating from École Supérieure de Cuisine Française (ESCF) - FERRANDI Paris. During his training he worked at award-winning restaurants including Restaurant Les Bouquinistes, under the direction of Guy Savoy and at Restaurant Alain Ducasse. After graduation, Archambault met his mentor, Jean-Francois Rouquette, while working for him in Paris where Archambault started as a line cook, then advanced to sous chef.
Years later, as co-chef of Restaurant Le Pirate, in Corsica, France, the restaurant was awarded one-star from the Michelin Guide. Archambault’s journeys have taken him to Mexico City as executive chef of Restaurant Champs-Elysee, to California where he served as executive chef at RH at Andaz West Hollywood and l’Epicerie Market, and to the northeast where he joined Park Hyatt as executive chef of Blue Duck Tavern in Washington D.C. and most recently executive chef of the renowned Park Hyatt in New York.
“I am delighted to welcome Sebastien to Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek – he brings a wealth of world-class experience, innovative vision and exceptional talent,” said Andrea Gates, managing director of Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek.
“I am proud and honored to join the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek family,” said Archambault. “Texas has an abundance of farmers producing excellent ingredients, which I look forward to sharing in fresh, seasonal and local cuisine.”
The Mansion Restaurant has been a legend in Texas since opening in 1980, developing a reputation for impeccable service and world-class cuisine. A proud heritage of exquisite dining will continue evolving as executive chef Archambault leads the restaurant’s talented culinary team to offer an inviting and authentic Texas experience. Patrons can experience Chef Archambault’s dinner menu starting Friday, August 3, 2018.
