Jean Pierre B. | Server
Years of Industry Service: 40
When asked about how long he's been in the industry, Jean Pierre said ohmygod, let out a laugh, then thought for a few moments before he answered, "Forty years. Since I was 15 and working in a charcuterie in Orleans (France)." Jean Pierre came to Kansas City by way of New York where he first worked with Le Fou Frog chef/proprietor Mano Rafael at L'Auberge du Midi and then at Casanis on First Avenue First Street. He has stayed here because this is where he met his wife. Jean Pierre likes to garden, has a koi pond and in his retirement, would like to split his time between Kansas City and France. The last time he visited his home country was in 2008. He goes as often as he can, but said, "Good Lord. We're only waiters."
