Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Thursday, 20 November 2008

The Conrad Tokyo’s reputation as an exceptional dining destination has been acknowledged by the Michelin Guide Tokyo 2009, with the presentation of one Michelin star each for its Gordon Ramsay at Conrad Tokyo and China Blue restaurants. The guide also placed the Conrad in the highest hotel award category recognising its spacious rooms, excellent access for business or sightseeing and for its role at the forefront of the latest trends.

In its second year of assessing the Tokyo luxury hotels and restaurants market, the Michelin Guide Tokyo 2009 also awarded both restaurants the coveted symbol of “an interesting wine list” recognising their selections of fine wines from all over the world.

In awarding Gordon Ramsay at Conrad Tokyo one star the Michelin Guide particularly noted its “striking” open kitchen and Chef’s Table. “Tokyo is the top gastronomic city in the world,” explained Bernard Delmas, President and CEO of Michelin at the launch of the new guide. “This year we are very happy to recognise the exceptional quality of successful new entrants like Ramsay.”

Conrad Tokyo’s China Blue restaurant was also awarded a Michelin star for the second year running. In addition to highlighting China Blue as a place “offering cuisine prepared to a consistently high standard” and a superior level of comfort and service, the 2009 guide added recognition for the restaurant’s offering of both traditional Cantonese cuisine and “contemporary creations accented with flavours of other Asian countries.”

“There are very few Chinese restaurants in the guide,” said Michelin Director Jean-Luc Naret. “We only deal with the absolute best of the best in each category so the Chinese restaurants that appear in this 2009 Guide are outstanding.”

Gregor Andréewitch, the Conrad Tokyo’s General Manager, said, “Tokyo is fast building a reputation as the ‘dining capital of the world’. At the Conrad Tokyo, we are proud to be at the heart of this – providing a unique experience in design, space and culinary excellence.”

Gordon Ramsay, the multi-Michelin starred chef said he was delighted to receive the award. “Tokyo is one of the most amazing cities in the world in terms of restaurants and produce and therefore a great source of inspiration for a chef. This recognition from Michelin is wonderful news and I am very proud of my team there led by the talented head chef Shinya Maeda.”

Chef Maeda was appointed Chef de Cuisine earlier this year at Gordon Ramsay at Conrad Tokyo. He had worked as a chef all over Europe and in New York before meeting and working with Ramsay in several of his London restaurants. He promotes the “essence” of Gordon Ramsay’s cuisine, with his own Japanese-inspired creative flair and attention to detail.

China Blue also boasts one of the most talented executive chefs in Tokyo. Albert Tse, has a well established reputation for a modern interpretation of Chinese cuisine that has won the hearts of Tokyo’s Chinese food connoisseurs. Recently awarded the title of “Culinary Art Master” by Les Amis d’Escoffier Society, Albert works with classic Chinese ingredients subtly blended with new ingredients, presented in a contemporary way.
