At the age of 8, Olivier Giraud was already dreaming of going on stage but this dream seemed inaccessible to his parents, so he turned to the hotel and restaurant business. After graduating, he left Paris for the United States where he obtained a 6-year visa to work as a maitre d’ at the 5-star hotel, The Breakers Palm Beach, Florida.

The New York Times devoted an article to him and he even had the privilege to be presented to her majesty Queen Elizabeth II… Oh la la !
