Restaurant Kei – Paris – Resplendent

Named for the Chef, Kei Kobayashi, two Michelin star Restaurant Kei, in central Paris is today’s adventure. It is tucked away in a little side street only a few blocks from the worlds largest art museum the Louvre. Searching out breakaway chefs who have begun their careers in the big houses and are now establishing their own identity, leads us to Kei. We have been particularly enjoying the magic that Japanese chefs bring to French Cuisine and by all accounts […]

Passage 53 – Paris

The magical partnership of patron and Maître de Maison Guillaume Guedj and acclaimed Japanese Chef Shinichi Sato creates Passage 53, a two Michelin star dining experience hidden away in one of Paris’ amazing “passageways” tucked in between buildings in the centre of Paris. Another somewhat obscure place with little internet presence. Only the halo of two Michelin Stars tips us off to its existence.

Chef-Michael-Cimarusti-Providence-LA

Providence – LA – USA

Providence is LA’s two Michelin star restaurant that has been a success for the last decade. Chef Michael Cimarusti focussing principally on his passion for seafood.

We wandered down sunset boulevard, past the house of Blues, a rusty old building that had been a classic […]
