It’s Michelin season, as the renowned restaurant guide has released its new ratings for 2015. Michelin has been compiling its guide since 1900, with a three star rating standing for "exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey".
New York Michelin star awards were unveiled yesterday, whilst the UK’s restaurants were in the spotlight last week. 
 
This year marks the tenth New York City edition to be published by Michelin. The US counts a total of nine restaurants who have earned three stars, six of which can be found in New York. Top of the list is Masa, said to be America’s most expensive restaurant. The coveted three-star were also awarded to chef Thomas Keller’s Per Se and seafood restaurant Le Bernardin.
 Jean Georges is a true experience of fine-dining, the Chef's Table at Brooklyn Fare serves up a tasting menu by Chef Cesar Ramirez, whilst Eleven Madison Park 
focuses on New York’s culinary traditions. 
 
The UK edition of the Michelin Guide comprises a total of 167 restaurants, with four three-star establishments. Included on the list is Gordon Ramsey’s restaurant, as well as Alain Ducasse at the Dorchester, who serves up contemporary French dishes. The Waterside Inn, where Chef Alain Roux creates French cuisine, has held its three star title for 30 years. And finally there’s also Heston Blumenthal’s The Fat Duck, which is soon to open for six months in Melbourne. 
 
So whether you’re in the US or the UK, take your pick: it’s time to feast in luxury.
