London, England – Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester has just been awarded Three Michelin Stars, denoting exceptional cuisine worth a special journey, on the coveted 2010 Great Britain and Ireland listing.
The Dorchester Collection, who has always chosen culinary masterminds to represent their high creative standards, also boasts Three Michelin Stars each at Alain Ducasse at the Plaza Athénée and Yannick Alléno at Le Meurice in Paris, and Two Michelin Stars at GILT restaurant at The New York Palace.
Located within the famous Park Lane hotel since November 2007, Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester is led by Executive Chef Jocelyn Herland, Restaurant Director Christian Laval, and Head Sommelier Mathias Negro. The restaurant represents one of London’s most elegant venues, showcasing a stunning Table Lumière centerpiece seating six guests, surrounded by 4,500 shimmering fiber optics.
“After our award last year of two stars, rising three, we have strived to reach the coveted three star status. To receive such prestigious recognition from Michelin is a great honor. The team here has worked very hard to maintain the level of service and cuisine, and I am very proud of our achievements,” Alain Ducasse commented.
The restaurant has recently been named “Best Newcomer” by the 2009 Zagat guide and its Executive Chef Jocelyn Herland, who trained under the multi award-winning French chef Alain Ducasse, has developed an exciting menu which consistently respects and champions current seasonal produce — many sourced from the British Isles.
“As part of our excellent dining venues at The Dorchester, it gives us great pride to offer this celebrated restaurant to guests. Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester presents outstanding cuisine in elegant surroundings with an unmatched level of service; features that mark our success and ones which Michelin recognize as symbols of excellence,” Roland Fasel, General Manager at The Dorchester added.
