Restaurant David Toutain in Paris - 1 Michelin star

Rating: 91. Training with big name French chefs does set you up in the world of gastronomy and David Toutain (b.1981) trained with some of the very best, like Alain Passard, Pierre Gagnaire, Marc Veyrat, and Bernard Pacaud. Add to that two internships at Andoni Luis Aduriz' Mugaritz and Paul Liebrandt's Corton in New York City (now closed) and it will be of no surprise that when Toutain returned to ...

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...

Neige d'Ete in Paris - 1 Michelin star

Rating: 88. Pages, Neige d'Été and Nakatani: these are three of the seven new one-star restaurants in Paris, all are run by Japanese chefs, and all three are serving modern French/neo-bistro cuisine. Apart from the Michelin star these restaurants also have a minimalist, mainly white decor in common, with tablecloths by the way (are they making a comeback?!). Neige d'Été, ...

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.&...

Akrame in Paris - 2 Michelin stars

Rating: 91. Established in 2011, Akrame in Paris' 16th arrondissement has quickly collected two Michelin stars. The first star was awarded shortly after the opening in tje 2012 guide and the second star followed in 2014 already. Akrame is the fine dining restaurant of executive chef Akrame Benallal (b. 1981), who also owns two bistro/barbeque restaurants in Paris called Atelier Vivanda, one of which is lo...

Garance in Paris

Rating: 87. In 2012 l'Arpège alumni Guillaume Iskandar (chef) and Guillaume Muller (sommerlier/restaurant manager) opened Garance, a two-story restaurant in Paris' 7th arrondissement. On the ground floor there is a 4-seat kitchen counter and upstairs there is a small modern dining room and bar, which seats around 14 people.

Passage 53 in Paris - 2 Michelin stars

Rating: 93. When Japanese chef and Astrance alumnus Shinichi Sato and Guillaume Guedj, a member of the famous Paris butcher family Desnoyer, had opened Passage 53 in 2009, Michelin was quick to award a first star (in the next, 2010 guide for France) and the following year the restaurant was awarded a second star. Passage 53 is a tiny restaurant located in Paris' famous Passage des Panoramas which opened i...

Porte 12 in Paris

Rating: 90. In September 2014, Porte 12 opened its doors on 12 Rue des Messageries in the 10th arrondissement in Paris, a space for many years occupied by Café Panique. Porte 12 is backed by Singapore chef André Chiang (Restaurant André, number 6 in the 2014 Asia's 50 Best Restaurants list) and the kitchen is overseen by his former sous-chef Vincent Crépel (30), who has also wo...

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...

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 Sergent Recruteur, Paris - 1 Michelin star

Rating: 91. Note: Chef Antonin Bonnet left Le Sergent Recruteur in May 2015 The first thing you notice when you enter Le Sergent Recruteur is the beautiful contemporary interior, designed by the Spanish designer Jaime Hayon. A restaurant design that won him the 2013 Wallpaper Magazine 'Best Fixer-Upper' award. Le Sergent Recruteur opened in October 2012 and just five months later the restaurant w...

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...

Jean-François Piège, Paris - 2 Michelin stars

Rating: 95. Note: Jean-François Piège has left Thoumieux and will open his own restaurant in Paris called 'Le Grand Restaurant' in September 2015. What do Christophe Saintagne, Jocelyn Herland and Franck Cerruti have in common, apart from the fact that you may not know who they are? If you do know there names, you will also know the answer to my question: they are three three-starred ...

L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon, Saint Germain, Paris - 2 Michelin stars

Rating: 91. Very few chefs become a global brand in their own right. Paul Bocuse, Alain Ducasse and Gordon Ramsay come to mind. So does Joël Robuchon (b. 1945). One of the emperors of international gastronomy, he presides over a realm, studded with Michelin stars, that currently consists of establishments in nine cities: Paris, London, Las Vegas, Monaco, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Macau, Taipei and Singapore...

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...

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 ...

La Tour d'Argent - 15 quai de la Tournelle, Paris

Rating: 90. La Tour d'Argent is obviously most famous for its 'Caneton Tour d'Argent' or Pressed Duck. I don't know if it's on the '101 foods to try before you die' list but if it's not, it definitely should be. After the duck is roasted, the breasts and legs are removed and then the carcass is placed in a duck press to extract the juices and blood, which are then u...

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 ...
