Pierre Gagnaire Named Best Chef in the World
10 February 2016
Three Michelin Starred French Chef Voted Top by His Peers
The best restaurants in the world are famously ranked in the Michelin Red Guide. Within its pages you can discover the finest places to eat around the world; read intricate details about style, value and location. It’s great… the gold standard for restaurant rankings, with the power to make and break a restaurant. However… it’s not the only guide that the greatest chefs in the world truly care about.
Since 1986, Le Chef has been producing the definitive guide to the best chefs in the world… and everybody wants to be on it. The way it works is simple, 2 & 3 Michelin Starred chefs get to vote for their top five chefs and the results are calculated into a 100 strong list.
At the end of 2015, it was Pierre Gagnaire that claimed the top spot. The chef has been running his 3 Starred flagship restaurant from Hotel Balzac for almost two decades now… and it is his tireless devotion to ‘Tourné vers demain mais soucieux d'hier’ (Facing tomorrow but respectful of yesterday), that keeps him at the very top of his game.
Due to this popular demand we recommend that you make a booking as early as possible to avoid disappointment. Please call +33 1 58 36 12 50 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or call +33 1 44 35 18 00 to make an enquiry.
