Maison Troisgros in Ouches - 3 Michelin stars

Rating: 89. Maison Troisgros ("Troisgros") is a 4th generation family-run hotel and restaurant, originally established in Roanne, France, but since early 2017 relocated to a rather spectacular new, 17-hectare "domaine" in Ouches. The first few glimpses of this new location in the Loire countryside were shown in the Chef's Table France's Troisgros episode, a Netflix series that wa...

Le Cinq in Paris - 3 Michelin stars

Rating: 98. Le Roi est mort, vive le Roi! Fine Dining is dead, long live Fine Dining. The past five years have been truly challenging for the fine dining industry. Faced with the new economic reality that gradually set in after the financial crisis of 2008, lots of restaurants have been tinkering about with a new-style fine dining concept. Numerous restaurants relaunched with more casual concepts, a...

l'Ambroisie in Paris - 3 Michelin stars

Rating: 99. I've gone astray. When it comes to choosing food at a restaurant I've always had a preference for tasting menus. Firstly because I'm greedy, but more importantly, it will usually give you the most intense and broad experience in a restaurant; in some cases you did make that special journey after all. It also has to do with value for money and in countries such as Spain, the Netherlan...

Epicure at Le Bristol (Eric Frechon) in Paris - 3 Michelin stars

Rating: 98. The name Oetker is usually associated with baking products and ready-made pizzas, that go under the name Dr. Oetker, part of the Oetker Group, a 120-year-old family business in Germany. The founder of the Oetker Group was Dr. August Oetker (hence Dr. Oetker), a pharmacist from Bielefeld, Germany, who developed a baking powder in 1893 and started selling it commercially for domestic purposes.&...

l'Assiette Champenoise in Reims - 3 Michelin stars

Rating: 93. When l'Assiette Champenoise was awarded a third Michelin star in February 2014, it had been more than 10 years since the Champagne area had had a three-star restaurant. The last one had been Les Crayères (now two stars) during the reign of Gérard Boyer, until his retirement in 2003. l'Assiette Champenoise is a family run hotel and restaurant in Reims, France. Executive chef i...

Le Pavillon Ledoyen in Paris - 3 Michelin stars

Rating: 97. The Paris high-end dining scene has been quite tumultuous lately, including some big-name chef swaps. It all started in January 2013, when Yannick Alléno announced that he was leaving Le Meurice after ten years of service. A couple of months later, Le Meurice appointed Alain Ducasse (and his right-hand man Christophe Saintagne) as Alléno's successor. Ducasse and Saintagne had som...

Les Prés d'Eugénie - Michel Guérard

Rating: 98. These days no awards ceremony (and they are plentiful) seems to be complete without a 'Lifetime Achievement Award'. Among the still active grandfathers, godfathers of French cuisine, the famous Paul Bocuse (86) is no doubt the doyen, but the name of legendary French chef Michel Guérard (81) seems surprisingly overlooked. Guérard is a man who has devoted his life to his profes...

La Cote Saint Jacques in Joigny, France (3 Michelin stars)

Rating: 96. La Côte Saint Jacques is a third generation family restaurant, located on the banks of the Yonne river in Joigny, Burgundy and it has been a Relais & Chateaux member since 1977. The building in which the restaurant is located also houses 32 rooms and suites, a boutique and a spa. The restaurant was originally established as an inn in 1945 by Marie Lorain, current chef-patron Jean Michel ...

Astrance in Paris - 3 Michelin stars

Rating: 99. Sometimes when you look at Twitter, you would think Paris only has two three-star restaurants: Alain Passard's l'Arpège and Pascal Barbot's Astrance. Paris has 10 three-star restaurants in total, but l'Arpège and Astrance seem to be at the top of many wish lists; Astrance surely was on mine. In my experience l'Arpège is not that difficult to ...

Le Pré Catelan, Paris - 3 Michelin stars

Rating: 98. With a surface area of approximately 3,266 square miles, the Bois de Boulogne in the 16th arrondissement in Paris is one of the largest public parcs in Europe. The famous Roland Garros tennis court is located on the edge of the 'bois'. Right in the middle, in the Pré Catelan gardens, is a rather splendid pavillion, dating back to the time of Napoleon III, in whic...

l'Arpège in Paris - 3 Michelin stars

Rating: 99. It needs no saying that Alain Passard is one of the greatest, active French chefs. If there is such a thing as a "Big Five" in French gastronomy, Passard certainly belongs in it, together perhaps with the likes of Alain Ducasse and Pierre Gagnaire, Michel Troisgros and Guy Savoy? He was widely regarded as the best rôtisseur in France (and, by consequence, in French eyes a...

Guy Savoy in Paris - 3 Michelin stars

Rating: 99. Guy Savoy (1953) is not a child prodigy. His rise to culinary fame has been gradual and he was almost fifty years old when Michelin bestowed on him the honour of a third star. After training at Le Lion d'Or in Genève, Troisgros in Roanne, Lasserre in Paris and L'Oasis in La Napoule, he opened his eponymous restaurant in the Rue Duret in Paris in 1980. Here, he received his first sta...

Auberge de l'Ill, three Michelin stars in Illhaeusern

Rating: 96. Some Michelin-starred restaurants in France are true family businesses. Auberge de l'Il in the charming village of Illhaeusern is one of them. It is a 4th generation restaurant that has been run by the Haeberlin family for 130 years. The restaurant was established as a country inn called l'Arbre Vert in 1882 by the current patron Marc Haeberlin's great-grandparents. The original i...

Maison Pic, three Michelin stars in Valence

Rating: 96. Just like the iconic three-star restaurants Georges Blanc, Maison Troisgros and Paul Bocuse do in their respective communes, Maison Pic prominently takes its time-honoured place in the town of Valence. Maison Pic is a family run hotel and restaurant and Anne-Sophie Pic is already the fourth generation of this family to be the executive chef at the restaurant. Anne-Sophie's great-gran...

Maison Troisgros in Roanne, 3 Michelin stars

Rating: 99. A few days before my visit to Maison Troisgros I read an interview with Giles Coren (the London Times' food critic) in the UK newspaper Metro. Coren was interviewed about his new book "How to Eat Out". One of the questions of the interviewer was: "What are three great myths about eating out?" Giles Coren answered as follows: "1. That the waiters spit in ...

Georges Blanc in Vonnas - 3 Michelin stars

Rating: 95. Georges Blanc is a family restaurant in the pretty village of Vonnas, that has held three Michelin stars since 1981. The restaurant started out as an inn in 1872 and after three generations of female chefs, Georges Blanc is the first male chef to be at the helm of the Blancs' kitchens. Georges Blanc took over from his mother Paulette in 1968. Under the reign of Georges Blanc's legendary gr...

Flocons de Sel - France's new three-star restaurant

Rating: 98. France currently has 26 three-star restaurants. The latest addition to the list (in the 2012 guide) was Emmanuel Renaut's Flocons de Sel in Mégève in the French Alps. Emmanuel Renaut has trained in some of the best kitchens in Europe. After some time at Le Crillon in Paris he started working for the world-famous three-star chef Marc Veyrat at his restaurant Auberge de l'Erida...

Pierre Gagnaire in Paris - 3 Michelin stars

Rating: 100. With restaurants in Paris, London, Dubai, Las Vegas, Tokyo, Moscow, Hong Kong and Seoel, Pierre Gagnaire's cuisine is present all around the world but obviously he's still most famous for his eponymous restaurant in Paris. His success story didn't start in Paris however. It was in Saint-Étienne that Pierre Gagnaire was awarded three Michelin stars in 1993. A few years ...

Alain Ducasse at The Plaza Athenée - the Midas touch

Rating: 89. Alain Ducasse is a living legend. He is the only chef ever to have had three Michelin stars at three different restaurants in three different cities - at the same time. He achieved this unique accolade for the first time in 2005 when the then Alain Ducasse at the (Jumeirah) Essex House in New York was awarded three stars in the first Michelin guide for New York. After this restaurant had...

Epicure by Eric Frechon at Le Bristol - 3 Michelin stars

Rating: 98. During his presidency, Nicolas Sarkozy counted Epicure restaurant (Epicure) at Hotel Le Bristol in Paris among his favourite haunts. Conveniently, the hotel is just a stone's throw away from the Elysee palace in the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honore in the 8th arrondisement. Le Bristol is part of the Oetker hotel collection and the hotel and restaurant have re-emerged not long ago after an ...

Paul Bocuse - La Grande Cuisine

Rating: 96. The Bocuses had been chefs in Collonges-au-Mont-d'Or since 1765 when Georges Bocuse sent his son Paul to be apprenticed at Claude Maret's Restaurant de la Soierie in Lyon in 1942. After the war, Paul continued his training at La Mère Brazier (*** at the time since 1933), La Pyramide and Lucas Carton. In 1959 he took the reigns at the family's restaurant, then named l'Au...

l'Arnsbourg, 3 Michelin stars

Rating: 96. Note: Chef Jean-Georges Klein has left l'Arnsbourgh in 2014 and is set to open a new restaurant at Villa René Lalique in Alsace in September 2015. Exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey, that is Michelin's description of a three-star restaurant. Where some three-star restaurants are bang in the middle of a city, a lot of them aren't. In some cases a speci...
