In 1997, he expanded his culinary skills while employed at Les Bookinistes, a renowned Guy Savoy Restaurant. In 1999 he worked at Le Bistro de L’Etoile, another well-known Guy Savoy Restaurant located near the world famous Champs-Elysées.
After his extensive training, Chef Fabrice took a lifetime opportunity in 2001 and moved to the United States, opening as a sous-chef at La Brasserie in Fort Myers Florida. In 2007 he started as sous-chef at The Joint in Cape Coral, and was soon promoted to Chef de Cuisine one year later.
In July 2014, The Joint was sold and subsequently re-opened as Fathoms Restaurant & Bar, where Chef Fabrice partnered up in the kitchen with French Chef Benjamin Voisin. Together they have been running the kitchen ever since. In late 2015, the pair established Black Salt Culinary, an upscale catering company that focuses on a combination of fine dining and culinary art that satisfies each individual client's wishes.
