Special Report on Haute Cuisine

Between September-December 2014, we anonymously tested all nine of the Paris restaurants that hold three Michelin stars, along with seven others that are considered to be shining examples of haute cuisine. 

In total, we spent €7150 in tasting 200 individual compositions during more than 65 hours at the table. You can learn more about how and why we did this by reading Behind the Curtain: Examining Haute Cuisine in Paris

Here are the articles that have come out of this:

If you simply want to scroll and droll over the dishes being served in Paris’ three star restaurants, we’ve collected photos from everything we tasted during this project, along with a few shots of these magnificent interiors.

    Amazing effort! Sincere thank you for this valuable research and honest article. I am going to be in Paris for the first time this summer and I am looking forward to dine at Michelin star restaurant based on your recommendation. Next time I am sure your readers will be willing to crowd source the next expedition.

    this almost borders on consumer abuse …….
    i.e…… all these drool-inducing photos (bordering on slobbering)
    and no ability to taste or smell……………….
    only the odor of the keyboard cleaner ……….
    good thing I know you better ………….!!!!!!!
