    Rémy described the French Michelin inspector's life as lonely, underpaid drudgery, driving around France for weeks on end, dining alone, under intense pressure to file detailed reports on strict deadlines. He maintained that the guide had become lax in its standards.

    Seems cruel to treat inspectors in this fashion

    Been to a bunch of 1s and a few 2s. Never been to a 3 star though.

    As far as overrated, I'm a steak and potatoes guy, so most of the sushi and french cuisine places didn't appeal to me.

    More of a personal preference thing though.

    Yeah it definitely shows how stressful it is to work in a high end kitchen.

    I've driven past the 3 star French laundry in Yountville a dozen times or so, does that count ?

    I sat at the chef's table at Charlie Trotters for my brother's 50th birthday, before Trotter died, it was pretty amazing

    years ago i had dinner with The Donald (when he still had The Yacht). All the chefs at the Water Club were Michelin rated. The veal still tastes like veal.
