Owner of the Michelin-starred La Côte Saint Jacques restaurant and hotel in Burgundy, Chef Jean-Michel Lorain is widely regarded as one of France’s most highly respected chefs. Teaming up with his father, Michel, he continued the family legacy started by his grandmother, an esteemed chef in her own right. Together, they earned the restaurant its first two Michelin stars in 1971 and 1976, with a third star awarded in 1986, marking the success of the father-son duo. Jean-Michel’s commitment and enthusiasm in providing his guests with outstanding fare, transforming each meal into a culinary journey for the senses, have upheld these exemplary standards to this day.


Chef Nicolas Keller, a fresh talent from the Alsace region of France, is the dynamic force behind the culinary creations at J’AIME by Jean-Michel Lorain. At just 24 years old, Nicolas has already distinguished himself in the high-pressure kitchens of Michelin-starred restaurants, including a formative stint at La Côte Saint Jacques, where he refined his craft under the mentorship of Chef Jean-Michel Lorain himself.

In his role at J’AIME, Nicolas aims to honour the traditions of French gastronomy while injecting his innovative vision into every dish, crafting experiences that are both familiar and thrillingly new.
