Bernard’s Room overlooks the gleaming exposition kitchen for those wishing to experience the creative energy of the Chef and his staff in action.
Chef Bernard was born in Condrieu, France in 1953. His family operated a farm and this is where Bernard gained his appreciation for fresh, tasteful food. His father wanted him to pick up a trade, so at age 13, he became an apprentice charcutier and worked in Vienne until 1972. He worked under the direction of Chef Paul Bocuse in Lyon, France from 1972 to 1974 as a cuisinier and with Roger Verge in Le Moulin de Mougin. Bernard was sent by Paul Bocuse to the United States in 1974 to work at Le Francais in Wheeling, Illinois as a saucier/sous chef under the supervision of Jean Bachet. He then worked at the Pump Room in Chicago, Illinois from 1978 until 1980 as Executive Chef.
Bernard was hired in 1980 at the Beverly Hills Hotel at the recommendation of Wolfgang Puck. He was Executive Chef at the hotel until 1986. After leaving the Beverly Hills Hotel, Bernard went to the Grand Champions Resort in Indians Wells and also to Aspen, Colorado serving as Executive Chef until opening Cuistot in 1987.
When you have a thriving restaurant, widely regarded as one of the best, even perhaps the best in the desert, why on earth would you want to move? A Chef’s life is stressful enough! To take on the extra challenge of moving everything from a well-established location to a totally new venue seems like a choice of a workaholic run amok. But the opportunity to purchase the land at the intersection of two of the most traveled and renowned thoroughfares in the desert only presents itself once in a lifetime. So in 2003 Bernard and his wife Susan broke ground on their new location. The building incorporates a rustic French farmhouse theme conceived by the Dervieuxs and executed by Design Development in Agoura Hills, CA.
