Our Story

French-trained Chef Grégoire Jacquet was dissatisfied working at five-star, Michelin-rated restaurants around the world. Craving independence, he left fine dining to venture off on his own. 

On June 26, 2002, Jacquet transformed the tradition of carry out food by opening the first high-end takeout restaurant– called Grégoire –just around the corner from the renowned Chez Panisse in the heart of Berkeley’s Gourmet Ghetto. Nearly twenty years later, Grégoire remains a neighborhood institution and the home of the renowned potato puff.
