Vittoz, a native of the western French region of Brittany, is thus no stranger to the cuisine. And, he's no stranger to the local scene either, having served as the startup chef at the city's Doubletree Hotel on Nott Terrace. His resume also includes kitchens in the Catskills and in New York City.
Vittoz succeeds Dominic Colose, who left the position last month in favor of expanding his Yawning Duck catering service.
Chez Nous is located at 707 Union Street. Hours:5m to 9mp.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Phone: (518) 344-6393.
