Commis - Two Star Michelin Restaurant
November 10, 2016
We had our most expensive, fanciest, most mind changing meal of our lives.
What is a Michelin Star restaurant?
It is the best of the best. It means the food is of the highest quality everything is thought out and delivered in a great performance by the chef. From the service to the environment it is beyond perfect. There is only four cities in the States and we happened to live in one.
1 STAR- "A VERY GOOD RESTAURANT IN ITS CATEGORY"
2 STAR- "EXCELLENT COOKING, WORTH A DETOUR"
3 STAR-" EXCEPTIONAL CUISINE, WORTH A SPECIAL JOURNEY"
