A Michelin Guide star glistens, capturing the prestigious status of Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme’s restaurant Le Pur’ amid the comings and goings that Chef Jean-François Rouquette choreographs exquisitely. The inventiveness, youth and drive that define this team, its unfussy elegance and the fact that its members know everything there is to know about the dishes simply usher customers into a different universe.
The team is there to honour French gastronomy and Paris dining, the finest wines and champagnes, and, in particular, the restaurant’s patrons with utterly bespoke, eminently professional, yet affable and friendly, service.
The restaurant will be closed for summer from July 27 to August 27 2014.
Discover Michelin Star Cuisine in Paris
The Michelin Guide is the most famous rating system for restaurants in the world. If you travel to Paris, you will find a number of Michelin-starred restaurants to choose from. Here is a guide to the Michelin guide and fine dining in the city.
What Is the Michelin Guide?
The Michelin Guide is a reference book that is released each year that provides reviews of the best restaurants all over the world. It has been published for over a hundred years since the first one was released in 1900 by the tyre-manufacturer Michelin, originally as a guide for motorists. After 1920, the guide began to include restaurants, and as this section became more popular, it began to award stars to restaurants that stood out above the rest. In 1931, the three-star system was introduced, which remains in place to this day.
France: The Place to Go for Fine Dining
France has the most three-star restaurants compared to any other country. In the 2012 edition of the Michelin Guide, it had 26 three-star restaurants, compared to Germany in second-place who had 9. Of these, Paris had 10 three-star restaurants, and 50 with at least one star. What this means is that when you visit Paris, you are in one of the best cities in the world for fine culinary experiences.
