ABOUT ANDRÉ ROCHAT
Rochat was born in the French Alps where his family owned a charcuterie shop in the village of La Rochette. After learning the business—beginning at the age of five—he left home at 14 to apprentice at Leon de Lyon, the renowned Michelin two-star restaurant in the heart of Lyon.

In 1965, Rochat departed his native France, arriving in Boston with a set of knives in his suitcase and $5 in his pocket. After cooking at several East Coast, he eventually landed in Las Vegas. In 1973, he opened a successful business, Savoy French Bakery, after observing the absence of an authentic French boulangerie in Las Vegas.

In 1978, he purchased a 1930s-era house in downtown Las Vegas and transformed it into his eponymous restaurant, which reimagined the ambience of a French country inn.

As the only freestanding gourmet option at the time, Andre’s quickly became a hit with locals and tourists alike. The restaurant made such an impact, the city of Las Vegas honored Rochat for his contribution to the community by renaming the street to Chef André Rochat Place.

In 1997, Rochat opened a second location on the Strip, Andre’s Restaurant and Lounge at Monte Carlo. By 2001, he opened Alizé at the Top of Palms Casino Resort. In 2008 and 2009, both Alizé and Andre’s were recognized by the Michelin Guide with the one-star rating.

“I’m not a celebrity chef. I just love to cook,” says Rochat.
