But Roger Fessaguet, the eatery’s first chef and former owner, still knows how to cook.
Fessaguet, who retired in 1988 and now has a home in Maine, crossed my path one day when I was working as a reporter at the Lincoln County Weekly. Once I realized who he was, I convinced him to grant me an interview. I met him at his seaside home, which was complete with a professional kitchen equipped with every pot and pan imaginable, and he told me about his career.
The most important thing to him at a restaurant, he said, was the greeting. Well, he said the food was just as important, but that without a proper greeting at the door from a pleasant host or hostess, the rest of the dining experience was meaningless.
He said the kitchen and the dining room had to run like a well-oiled machine -- and the customers were his top priority. He told me about the time he chased at least one president out the door in theater-crowd traffic to return a jacket, and about his worst moment in more than 20 years at the restaurant. He said it was the day he accidentally seated two movers and shakers at adjacent tables not realizing they were engaged in a lawsuit and couldn’t stand the sight of one another. He still shudders at the memory.
A classically trained French chef, Fessaguet loved to talk about food, running the kitchen and dining room, managing staff and the many friends he made during his career.
As Roger Fessaguet would say: “Bon appetit!”

"Pickled herring was definitely not a Pavillon recipe," said Roger Fessaguet, a chef at Le Pavillon and later the owner and chef of La Caravelle.
For Yom Kippur, my mother, who lives alone, prefers the quiet spirit she grew up with, breaking the fast by herself with pickled herring and a glass of rye.

On the sad news of the passing of chef Roger Fessaguet, 82, much mention is being made of his career at the marvelous (and also dearly departed) La Caravelle. I did not dine there during his tenure (what with the rather young-being at the time), but certainly felt his legacy when I did so in 2002.
