THE BASTION COLLECTION
A modern haven of community, creativity & quality
THE BASTION COLLECTION
The Bastion Collection is a modern haven of community, creativity & quality.
We are a collection of hospitality concepts - across hotels, residences, boats & restaurants - anchored in a legacy spirit of excellence and in the well-being of our communities.
As of October 2020, we manage 15 unique restaurant & food concepts globally, 1 masterpiece water-front hotel in Geneva (The Woodward), 1 exclusive Paris residence (The Talleyrand Residence), and 2 luxury yachts in the south of France (Arados) and in Greece (Levantine II).
We stand for community. We stand for creativity. And in all that we do, we strive for exceptional-grade quality.
We are incredibly humbled to have inherited Joel Robuchon’s culinary legacy, and the great chefs that emerged from his school, and to own and manage his ateliers in the United States, and in Geneva, Switzerland. By many measures, Robuchon was the godfather & engine of modern cuisine - he was indefatigably inventive, and the most starred chef in the world. To say we are honored to carry this responsibility is an understatement.
We believe passionately in our teams and the creative minds of our acclaimed and Michelin-starred executive chefs: Jonathan Benno, Olivier Jean, Salvatore Martone and Alain Verzeroli.
Bastion Restaurants is additionally proud to serve as a hub for an incoming generation of chefs who draw from this same legacy & sense of creativity. We stand by them as they prepare for their culinary futures.
In 2018-2019, we were humbled to have 5 Michelin stars bestowed on four of our NYC restaurants: L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon** - The Grill by Robuchon* - Benno* - Le Jardinier*
We are equally proud that our flagship Geneva property, The Woodward, is managed by the Oetker Collection, notable proprietors of Le Bristol Paris and Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes, among many others.
Community & Covid-19 Response
Every day, we celebrate three things: the people who make the magic happen, the people who come to enjoy our magic and the people who live in the neighborhoods where that magic is served.
We are activated community members in New York City, Geneva, Miami, and Houston, and will always go above to show our love of and support for the communities where we operate.
In March 2020, as the Covid-19 crisis hit NYC hard, one of our executive chefs, Jonathan Benno, and his colleague/our COO Antonio Begonja, were amongst the first delivering meals from Benno’s restaurant to local hospital ICU’s (read more about their efforts here). They were able to provide over 10,000 meals to local hospitals, and first responder stations. We are proud to call them family. This is the spirit of compassion & community we hope to always emulate and defend worldwide as The Bastion Collection.
