Michelin star chef Yannick Alleno, who just opened a pavilion at the Hermitage Hotel, lost his son in a tragic car accident in Paris.
24-year-old Antoine Areno was stopped at a traffic light at 7 o’clockth Arron dissement when attacked by a speed-violating Audi RS6 allegedly stolen after 11:00 pm. The victim died on the scene, and his passengers and VTC driver were taken to the hospital in crisis.
The driver, who was reportedly asked by police to be sentenced to drunk driving, fled on foot before being arrested by an off-duty police officer.
Antoine Areno has been trained as a chef under his father, who has been awarded three Michelin stars since 2007 and embarked on his illustrious career. He opened the restaurant Burger Père et Fils with his father last year.
“It’s very sad that chef Yannick Alleno, mother Isabel, brother Thomas, family, and the Yannick Alleno Group team have announced the death of their son, brother, colleague, and friend Antoine. “The victim of a traffic accident in Paris on the night of May 8th,” his family said in a press release. “During this difficult time, the Areno family and their loved ones are very sensitive to the mercy and understanding of all, while respecting their privacy.”
Yannick Alleno joined the Society de van de Mer in Monaco in early 2021 and held the reins of Vistamar at the Hôtel Hermitage. Just two weeks ago, the now 13-star chef announced the Monte Carlo version of the famous Pavyllon restaurant.
