Husband and Wife Team Emily Roux and Diego Ferrari HAVE OPENED Their First Restaurant, Caractère.

Called Caractère, the restaurant name is a play on both chefs’ unique and strong characters, their family influences, and their cooking and eating experiences, which will be reflected both in the menu and the décor.

The food will be focussed on simple and delicious French and Italian dishes, stemming from both chefs’ heritage and expertise.

“My background and my training is of course Classic French Fine Dining, but I’ve always been so in love with Italian food. Then I found love with Italian-born Diego when we were both working in Monaco at Alain Ducasse’s three Michelin starred restaurant, Le Louis XV. Since we’ve been together, he has taught me so much about Italian food. Our new restaurant brings together our story, and our menu will always be a reflection of the food we love to cook and love to eat,” says Emily Roux

Each season the menu will change, and diners will also have the opportunity choose from the daily specials. The wine list will offer both French and Italian wines, and will predominantly feature smaller winemakers.

“Caractère is the manifestation of everything we love and we cannot wait to share it.” – Diego Ferrari

Albert Roux's lifetime work as a restauranteur, hotelier, retailer and wholesale manufacturer of foods places him in the forefront of advisors.
