Maître Cuisinier de France – 2009
Olivier Dubreuil was born in Rochefort, a coastal town northwest of Bordeaux, France. At a very young age, Olivier was instilled with respect and enthusiasm for cooking. His grandmother’s garden was his market and he began creating family meals from the quality and freshness found there. In 1989, Olivier departed to begin a career with Club Mediterranee, and the journey brought with it its own gastronomic tutelage.
His gourmet dining experience in the United States began at the historic Desert Inn Hotel, 1996 in Las Vegas. In April of 1999, Olivier was asked to be a part of the development team for the Paris Las Vegas Hotel and Casino. As Executive Chef, Olivier was responsible for all culinary aspects of the hotel, including 7 restaurants, 6 food outlets, and 200,000 square feet of premium banquet space.
In September of 2002, he was honored with the Key to the City by Mayor Oscar Goodman for his contributions and promotion of Las Vegas.
