Michel Richard, one of the pioneers in revolutionizing French-California cuisine, started his career making pastries in his native France. After coming to the U.S. in 1974, he moved around for a while, from
Santa Fe to Los Angeles, eventually setting down roots in Washington, D.C. His ingenious modern French cooking assures Citronelle’s position as a culinary Mecca.
