William Varney has been named general manager at Brasserie Pavil. Varney is former owner of the Fredericksburg Herb Farm. There, he expanded what started as a small Central Texas farm to one encompassing two retail locations, an organic restaurant, a five-station aroma therapy day spa, and an associated bed-and-breakfast. Varney sold the farm in 2008 after 23 years of successful operation.
He most recently served as general manager of the Fromage du Monde in Fredericksburg, handling the day-to-day operations of the Hill Country cheese shop and restaurant.
The author of two books, “Along the Garden Path” and “Herb Growing and Using the Plants of Romance,” Varney has lectured throughout the United States and abroad on the art of raising and using herbs and herbal flavors.
“Bill brings a truly unique background to Brasserie Pavil,” said Patrick J. Kennedy, owner of Brasserie Pavil and founder of Watermark Hotel Company. “His experience as a successful business owner combined with his enthusiastic demeanor will be a great asset to the restaurant.”
