'The Daily Meal' Reveals Its Favorite World-Wide Hotel Restaurants. What are Yours?
Ever tried the blackened miso pork belly at Opposite House? How about the 280 EURO tasting menu at Le Bristol Paris? Or Joël Robuchon's award-winning French cuisine at MGM Grand in Las Vegas?
If you happen to have dined at any of these—or 98 other—top-tier hotel restaurants around the world, you may want to take a look at The Daily Meal's "101 Best Hotel Restaurants Around The World," which was published late last week. Consulting the Michelin Guide, and using the well-traveled knowledge of TDM editors, the list was compiled using only two criteria: the hotels had to have at least 15 rooms (which immediately eliminated small B&Bs and private dining clubs), and the restaurants had to actually be housed within the hotels themselves.
However, that still left a lot, a lot, a lot of restaurants to choose from. In fact, the final list tallied properties in over 80 cities in 40 countries across six continents. Find out which of your favorites made the cut!
It's an ambitious undertaking to be sure, and the list is arranged alphabetically, which means the restaurants aren't actually ranked, just given the honor of being included. However, should you be planning a trip outside of the usual Paris-London-New York circuit—Mauritius? South Africa? Kentucky?—then at least you've now got a few restaurant recommendations to bring with you.
See the full list here.
