Richard Blondin

Chef Richard Blondin moved to Ohio from Lyon, France, as a young chef eager to travel and excited to try his hand cooking stateside. More than two decades later, he’s still here.

A lot has changed on the Columbus dining scene over those decades, but The Refectory’s reputation as the city’s finest dining option has not. Blondin’s impeccable French technique, masterful sauces and artistic presentation helped earn the restaurant a coveted trifecta of awards—Best Fine Dining, Best Romantic Restaurant and Best Wine List—in this year’s Best of Columbus reader poll in Columbus Alive (2014).
