Four Seasons Executive Chef Andrea Accordi Reaches for Another Michelin Star

Last year the iconic Four Seasons opened the their first hotel in Russia, the Four Seasons Hotel Lion Palace St. Petersburg, located in a historical palace known as the House with Lions. “Years of meticulous restoration and perfecting of the guest experience are setting the stage for a new era of style and luxury in St. Petersburg,” says Christopher Norton, who is the Executive Vice President of Global Product and Operations. A prime example of “perfecting the guest experience” occurs when dining in any of the hotel’s three international restaurants, under the inspired leadership of their Italian-born Executive Chef, Andrea Accordi.

Accordi has big shoes to fill—his own! After four years as Executive Chef at Four Seasons Hotel Prague, he became the first chef to receive a Michelin star in all of Eastern Europe. And after experiencing an exquisite Chef’s dinner at The Lions, where we were completely blown away by Accordi’s creative interpretations on traditional Russian dishes, we're willing to bet that there’s another star lurking around with his name on it.
