Breathing New Life into Hospitality: Edgar Vaudeville Brings His International Expertise Stateside

A newcomer to the NYC dining scene, Parisian Edgar Vaudeville has worked with some of the most prestigious and luxurious hotels and esteemed restaurants in the world; from Poland, England, Australia, Thailand, Canada and Malaysia to all over the U.S. — including the famed Le Bristol Hotel in Paris and the W Doha in Qatar.
