From working in globally respected food cities like London, Paris, and New York, Belgian national (and father of three) Ignace Leclair has been striving in the food and beverage industry since the age of 16. Now, after this long journey, he has set foot in China‘s capital is a part of that new wave of food connoisseurs driving this thriving culinary industry in the city.
Known in Beijing as one of the hardest working people in F&B, Leclair is the proud owner of TRB, Hulu, and Peach. With multiple locations all over the city, it’s needless to say that Leclair has got a full plate on his hands and keeps himself busy 24/7.
What’s on your mind?

I’ve been spending most of my days now in the restaurants physically working with my team to ensure TRB hospitality is delivered.
What’s your motivation to get moving?
