Visit Every 3-Michelin-Starred Restaurant in 6 Months
Recipe of the day
Food lovers who have plenty of time on their hands and some $275,000 to spare, get your self to a computer stat. Eater tips us off to a new travel package from British site VeryFirstTo, which has partnered with HolidaysPlease to bring vacationers to eat at every three-Michelin-starred restaurant in six months.
According to the Telegraph, the cost of the trip, £182,000 (about $274,500 for a couple), covers business-class travel, "luxury hotel accommodations," and the cost of all meals including wine. Considering meals usually cost at least $250 to $350 a person, and there are 107 of them, at least $53,500 would go toward meals for two.
The Telegraph notes that the vacation is bound to be strenuous; part of the trip will be visitng "approximately one restaurant every other day," saving the other times for siteseeing and shopping. The group will most likely be spending a fair amount of time in Japan (Tokyo alone has 15 three-star restaurants), as well as New York (with the Chef's Table at Brooklyn Fare, Daniel, Eleven Madison Park, Jean Georges, Le Bernardin, Masa, and Per Se).
Paris will also be a hot spot, obviously, with 10 three-Michelin-starred restaurants within city limits. Those three cities combined, and $275,000 seems pretty reasonable. Ish.
