A French Michelin three-star chef is asking Allianz SE for 1.6 million euros ($1.9 million) in insurance claims for losses suffered by his restaurants during the country’s lockdowns, a person familiar with the matter said.

Chef Michel Troisgros has asked the German insurer to cover losses at his Michelin three-star restaurant Maison Troisgros, as well as another, Le Central, both located in central France, the person said, asking not to be named because the claims are private.
