Dominique Crenn is the first female chef in the United States to receive three Michelin stars—earned by her San Francisco restaurant Atelier Crenn, which she opened in 2011. She went on to launch Petit Crenn, a bistro focused on Breton cuisine, and Bar Crenn, a 1930s Paris–inspired salon. Needless to say, she knows a thing or two about entertaining.
