Enjoy some traditional French home cuisine prepared by Chef Jean Stephane Poinard at Bistro de Leon, located on the plaza in St. Augustine, Florida. A 5th generation Chef direct from Lyon, France Poinard has perfected his French home cuisine,“la cuisine de meres’, in his five restaurants. Chef Poinard is one of the honored chefs invited into the elite fraternity of Les Toques Blanches Lyonnaises and is a certified member of the Oldest Best Chef’s Association of France.
Together with his wife Valerie, a winemaker from the Domaine de la Fond Moiroux and his young children Jean-Sebastian and Margaux, Chef Poinard has realized his dream to bring the flavor of France to the United States. St. Augustine’s quaint village atmosphere is a fitting location for a family restaurant where you can take a moment to relax and enjoy his fine cuisine. After you dine, you may imagine, as you embark upon the Plaza, that perhaps you have captured a touch of Europe and certainly a ‘taste of France’.
While visiting Saint Augustine, the nation’s oldest city, why not try the ‘French way’ of dining. Chef Poinard chooses the freshest local seafood, herbs and produce. In his kitchen there is no assembly line or frozen fast food…only fresh, delightfully prepared dishes. By the way, if you hear singing from his kitchen, you have made the Chef happy!
