great space, but for me too many faults in the execution and echos from somewhere else

6

still the number 1 in Boston, the one hour business lunch is some of the best value you can find

8

Chef de Cuisine Tohru Nakamura is a magician. He will go higher than his current 2 stars.

9

Spanish Japanese Fusion in Cambridge. Gourmet casual at its best

7

Totally classic French cuisine, totally underrated. This place churns out quality food in unbelievable numbers.
An absolute must for me when coming to London.

8

Back for more from the Master. His scallops are just to die for.

9

Very impressive meal from 2 star Vollmers in Malmö, special meal celebrating an anniversary of the restaurant, they kick us off with. Krug champagne.
It did not go down from there. Quite the opposite.

8

Quick lunch, beautiful dishes with great phantasy, well executed and tasty.
