2023 Chefs

Matt Conroy



Saturday, May 20, 2023 at the Grand Tasting

At Lutèce, we warmly welcome guests to experience modern French cuisine in a fun and casual setting, in the Parisian neo-bistro style. Michelin-starred Chef Matt Conroy celebrates seasonal ingredients through simple, original dishes paired with joyful natural wines produced in a thoughtful manner—while our pastry chef Isabel Coss pushes the boundaries of classic French techniques with playful, indulgent desserts.

A Michelin-starred chef trained first in classical French and then Mexican cuisine, Matt’s passion is creating simple, modern dishes full of flavor using seasonal, high-quality local ingredients.

He moved from New York with his wife (and our pastry chef) Isabel Coss to introduce D.C. to the neo-bistro movement taking over Paris, providing modern takes on French classics, rounded out by a carefully curated list of natural wines.

At Lutèce, you’ll see glimpses of his diverse culinary background, from the Oaxaca-inspired Salsa macha paired with Buckwheat Galettes à la Brittany to the perfectly prepared Parisian Gnocchi.
