Executive pastry chef, Jean-Louis Berthet, has a passion for creating quality food “simple et efficace” (simple and efficiant) in the warm atmosphere of Maman. Born and raised in Saint-Julien in Brittany (west of France), Berthet fuses his French roots into maman’s family-inspired dishes and baked goods.

Jean-Louis developed a strong passion for baking from watching his mom in the kitchen, and entered the culinary world as a pastry chef at the young age of 14. In 2009, he spent three years in culinary school at La Closerie in Saint-Quay Portrieux, followed by two years of culinary school for his BTM degree at CFA de Ploufragan. While attending CFA de Ploufragan, he studied an overview of pastries and bread, and specialized in chocolate, ice cream making and candy while learning how to manage companies and production.

Prior to joining Maman in 2017, Jean-Louis was a pastry chef at Chez Pascal in the South of France. He shares his techniques by training team members and collaborating with all departments to give guests a unique experience. Jean-Louis approaches new items by choosing flavors that excite him, experimenting, exchanging ideas with his team, and always making sure it feels homemade from your mother’s kitchen.

Open seven days a week, Maman offers a selection of delicious baked goods, including its famous nutty chocolate chip cookies, named one of Oprah’s “Favorite Things” and one of NYC’s best chocolate chip cookies in New York Magazine. To-stay or to-go breakfast and lunch options are available, as well as seated brunch, and a full bar at select locations.
