Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Pocantico Hills (New York)

Rating: 98. The term "farm to table" or the relatively new "farm to fork" has become a marketing term used for almost any restaurant with a vegetable patch or restaurants that buy local produce. I don't know exactly when this term was coined, although the New York Times already mentions a "farm to table plan" in a 1914 article. Marketing term aside, for me farm-to-table is ...

Eleven Madison Park in New York City - 3 Michelin stars

Rating: 92. Where in Europe Michelin is often criticised (and sometimes rightfully so) for being too cautious or too conservative when awarding or taking away stars, the Michelin team in the United States are quite the opposite. In the US guides it's not uncommon for a restaurant to debute with two Michelin stars, or for a second star to be taken from a restaurant that had been promoted just 2 year...

MIMI is a tiny, 27-seat bistro in New York City's Greenwich Village, opened in October 2015 by young restaurateurs Louis Levy (son of French novelist Marc Levy), Camille Deterre, and Daniel and Even Bennett.

Alinea in Residence: Alinea Madrid

Rating: 92. Long ago, before the era of celebrity chefs and their restaurants, the only way to taste a famous chef's food, was to actually go to his restaurant and have a meal there. How things have changed. Nowadays you can go to exclusive "an evening with" events closer to your home. They tend to come at a price however - in Ferran Adria's case the privilege would have set you back a finan...

The Restaurant at Meadowood in Napa Valley, California - 3 Michelin stars

Rating: 99. In many European countries with their long winegrowing traditions, the concept of "creating" a first growth is almost anathema. The Californian pioneering spirit is of course completely opposite and when Bill Harlan in 1985 purchased a property west of Oakville, where no grapevine had ever been grown, it took him less than two decades to propel the wines from "Harlan Estate" to...

The French Laundry in Yountville, California - 3 Michelin stars

Rating: 94. If there is one restaurant that has become mythical over the years, it's Thomas Keller's The French Laundry in Yountville, California. Mythical because The French Laundry remains one of the toughest reservations in the world. It is at least, if you go at it the old fashioned way, and you just call them and try to book a table, without the help of a Black Amex or another concierge service. ...

Coi in San Francisco - 2 Michelin stars

Rating: 94. Daniel Patterson (b. 1969) is an East Coast boy who started working in kitchens in Massachusetts when he was 14 years old. In 1989 he dropped out of college and moved to San Francisco. For no particular reason, he says in his 2013 book "Coi" and it took him many years to learn to love the people and the place. In rural Sonoma, where he moved in 1991, he grew his knowledge of nature and p...

Bouchon in Yountville, California

Rating: 90. Did you know that America's largest veterans' home, housing some 1,000 veterans, is located in the small town of Yountville? I didn't. I guess most of us are much more familiar with Yountville as the home of the The French Laundry, Bouchon and Ad Hoc, all restaurants owned by gastronomic veteran Thomas Keller. After establishing the French Laundry in 1994, Keller opened his second Youn...

Benu in San Francisco - 3 Michelin stars

Rating: 97. After working for Thomas Keller at his restaurants The French Laundry and Per Se for almost a decade, Corey Lee struck out on his own in 2010 with Benu restaurant in San Francisco's SoMa district. Corey Lee had already earned his spurs as Chef de Cuisine at The French Laundry for 5 years, and he quickly climbed the Michelin ladder with his own restaurant. Benu debuted with two Michelin stars i...

Atelier Crenn in San Francisco - 2 Michelin stars

Rating: 96. Dominique Crenn is the chef/owner of Atelier Crenn in San Francisco. Atelier Crenn opened its doors in January 2011 and that same year in October, the restaurant was awarded a Michelin star (2012 guide). The second star followed the next year (2013 guide), making her the first female chef in the U.S. to receive 2 Michelin stars. Dominique Crenn is originally from Brittany (in the extreme west of F...

Manresa in Los Gatos (CA) - 3 Michelin stars

Rating: 95. Note: Manresa was awarded a 3rd Michelin star in the 2016 San Francisco & Bay Area Guide Under the watchful eye of chef/owner David Kinch, restaurant Manresa has held two Michelin stars since Michelin launched their first edition of the San Francisco & Bay Area guide in October 2006 (2007 guide). On his way to opening Manresa in Los Gatos in 2002, Kinch had taken a long and winding road...

Saison in San Francisco - 3 Michelin stars

Rating: 98. Michelin awarded only five restaurants world-wide a third star last year, three of which are located in the United States: Grace in Chicago and Benu and Saison in San Francisco. The other two were La Bouitte in France and Makimura in Japan. Saison and Benu are San Francisco's first ever three-star restaurants. The story of Saison in San Francisco is short but fascinating. Basically the restaur...

The New York City series - IV: Thomas Keller's Per Se

Rating: 97. In a few weeks time Europe will have its first taste of the legendary American chef Thomas Keller when he and 14 of his staff will be in London for "The French Laundry at Harrods' 10 day pop-up. Even at a price of £250 a head for lunch or dinner the booking lines were swamped when they opened on September 1st. It must have been the only time ever that one co...

The New York City series - III: Jean Georges

Rating: 98. This month's cover story in Wine Spectator Magazine is 'French Cuisine, American Style'. The story is about French chefs who have made their mark in the US or as Wine Spectator puts it "who have made America more delicious". Much to my surprise one name is conspicuously absent in the line-up: Jean Georges Vongerichten. His last name may sound German but he i...

The New York City series - II: David Chang's Momofuku Ko

Rating: 94. How on earth did you get in, someone asked. I guess I was just lucky. Momofuku Ko ('Ko') only accepts online reservations not more than 6 days in advance. The restaurant only has 12 seats. Ko does two seatings at dinner but that still leaves you with just 24 seats to book per night which isn't much anywhere - let alone in NYC. To make an online reservation you ...

The New York City series - I: Daniel by Daniel Boulud

Rating: 97. The first time I encountered Daniel Boulud's cooking was in March 2010 during the Rheingau Wein & Gourmet Festival in Germany, an annual two-week food and wine festival with an impressive line-up of German and international chefs. At the 2010 festival Daniel Boulud cooked a stunning 5-course dinner and after dinner I was fortunate enough to meet this charming man. 2010 was also the year wh...
