To the Editor:
This is a “thank you” to Bernard and Priscilla Cretier for their many years of fine cuisine and service. They have retired, which leaves a large void in fine dining in McHenry County.
When they opened Le Vichyssois 37 years ago, they brought Nouvelle French cuisine and chic atmosphere to little Lakemoor. The high quality French dishes, distinctive wines, attentive service, and warm and friendly hospitality was a hallmark of their restaurant.
My family and I were lucky enough to have a farewell dinner there this past Sunday, and were the last table served.
In their “short time” here, they won many friends who will miss them. Tearfully, I will be one of those, but we wish them well on their retirement.
Thank you for the wonderful times.
Maxine and Dan Cwiak
