Four Must – Try Michelin Star Restaurants
Food, spectacular food!
When it comes to food, it’s not simply a case of filling your belly with whatever you can grab, it’s about taste sensations, delicious cuisine, and trying something sublime. I’m sure you’re aware of the Michelin Star, the top award given to signify service, cuisine, and sublime tastes. The Michelin Star is what all chefs and restaurants aspire to, and even Gordon Ramsey was reduced to tears when one of his restaurants lost a precious star.
Top class restaurants are few and far between, as these stars aren’t given out willy-nilly. When you’re off traveling the globe, these are four you should take a very close look at.
London – Alain Ducasse at the Dorchester
Mayfair is full of class, and this restaurant oozes it even more. Three stars should tell you the standard of food you’re likely have placed down before you. A smart casual dress code is the rule, and private dining is also offered. Contemporary French cuisine, complete with bespoke service is on offer, with a modern touch. For example, the fillet of angus beef with seared foi gras rossini is a popular and luxurious dish.
Paris – L’Arpege
Paris has 70 star restaurants currently, so whittling it down to one is difficult. L’Arpege is located in the south west of the city on the Left Bank. Alain Passard’s dishes are mouth-watering and sublime, with elegance as standard. The signature dish is tiny smoked potatoes with horseradish mousseline, simply as a starter.
New York – Chef’s Table at Brooklyn Fare
Cesar Ramirez’s Chef’s Table is the proud owner of three stars within the city that never sleeps. This is a small and intimate restaurant, with only 18 seats. Diners are served around 20 small plate courses, and it is advisable to book weeks in advance if you want a table at this sought-after restaurant. The dress code is formal business attire only.
Barcelona – Abac
In Sarria, Sant Gervasi, this two star restaurant showcases simple dishes with a luxurious twist. Even eggs are given the sublime twist, meaning simple becomes spectacular. Set within the historic and sophisticated quarter of Barcelona, diners should observe a smart casual attire, and again, book well in advance to take advantage of this hugely popular restaurant.
Delicious food of course comes at a price, so this isn’t something that’s going to cost you pennies. Bear that in mind, book well in advance, and be prepared for the biggest taste sensation of your life.
Go on, treat yourself!
