Michel Richard, innovative chef who made DC a capital of dining, dies at 68 - Washington Post

Monday, August 15, 2016

By Matt Schudel,Michel Richard, whose innovative and whimsical fusions of French and American foods made him one of the country’s most influential chefs, and whose Citronelle and Central restaurants helped transform Washington into a dining destination, died Aug. 13 at a Washington hospital. He was 68.He had complications from a stroke, said Mel Davis, a longtime associate and spokeswoman.Mr. Richard (pronounced ree-SHAR) began his career at 14 as an apprentice pastry chef in his native France before coming to the United States in his 20s. He had his first major success in Los Angeles, but he had made Washington his home since the 1990s, when he opened Citronelle in Georgetown.In a city long belittled as a stodgy outpost of steakhouses and uninspired cuisine, Mr. Richard brought a Gallic flair and imagination to his kitchens. At Citronelle, which opened in 1993 and closed in 2012, he transformed classic French dishes into original and distinctive creations.Citronelle was among the first restaurants on the East Coast with an open kitchen, in which Mr. Richard and his staff prepared meals as if on a stage in full view of their customers. For him, a
