Chef Gremaud grew up under the glittery, culinary backdrop of Saint-Tropez, France. He wanted to be a professional chef for as long as he can remember and credits his mother for inspiring him to pursue his dream of opening his own restaurant. As a child, Julien spent many delightful hours learning the basics of French cooking under her patient instruction in the family’s kitchen. She equipped her son with the confidence and skill to become a professional pantry chef at just 14 years of age.
Shortly after that, Julien left France to hone his cooking and administrative skills at several of the finest restaurants in the UK including London’s Le Colombier and Goolies. In 2000, he arrived in the US at the age of twenty to hold consecutive positions at two of Chicago’s leading French restaurants: Le Francais and Le Vichyssois.
In 2002, he relocated to South Florida and accepted the position of personal chef for notable celebrities on Jupiter Island and Palm Beach Island. Chef Gremaud joined Pistache French Bistro in 2009 as a consultant, moving up to executive chef within weeks. His innovative approach to Francophile cuisine quickly transitioned the restaurant into a food critic favorite, garnering numerous accolades. Two years later, he was promoted to partner and co-opened Palm Beach’s famed seafood eatery, PB Catch. Finally, in fall 2014, Chef Gremaud opened the doors of Avocado Grill in downtown West Palm Beach.
In spite of a non-stop schedule, Chef Gremaud has been a frequent participant at a large number of local charity events that mark the Palm Beach social calendar. On his occasional day off Julien loves spending time with his wife, Tristan, and son, and their labrador retriever. He also enjoys spinning at his turntable (he’s been a DJ since he was a teenager) and traveling around the world to source exotic ingredients and discover non-traditional culinary practices.
