Le Yaca began in a tiny, country village in the French Alps in 1965. The little village was eight kilometers below an up and coming ski resort that has since become famous as Courchevel. Proprietor Daniele Bourderau and her husband Gerard Gormier decided that it would be fun to open a small restaurant for resort guests in one of the barns on the family property.

They created a second Yaca in Saint-Tropez in 1968. The second Yaca was as successful as the first one.

Daniele came to the United States and opened a new Le Yaca in Williamsburg on the 5th of December, 1980.
