The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, L.L.C. shines bright across global culinary scene

CHEVY CHASE, MD. – The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, L.L.C earned 13 coveted Michelin Stars for 2015, across eight restaurants in six hotels within Asia and Europe, reaffirming the luxury hotel company’s status as a leader in culinary excellence and innovation. From Abama to Barcelona, Wolfsburg to Osaka and Tokyo to Hong Kong, leading Ritz-Carlton restaurants compete on the global stage amongst the world’s finest dining establishments.

“All accolades belong to the Ladies and Gentlemen who bring service excellence to life in our restaurants every single day. They work with such dedication and passion in an environment in which constant evolution and creativity is essential. We are honored to have been recognized globally by such an esteemed, well-reputed organization,” said Rainer Zinngrebe, Vice President Food & Beverage for The Ritz-Carlton.

The world of three Michelin Star restaurants is extremely small, with a little over 100 restaurants in total around the world. One of which is ‘AQUA‘ at The Ritz-Carlton, Wolfsburg in Germany. Aqua retained three stars for its modern European cuisine, crafted by the celebrated Chef de Cuisine, Sven Elverfeld. The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong also retained Michelin Stars across two of its signature restaurants. ‘Tin Lung Heen’ maintains two stars for its traditional Dim Sum, created by Michelin-starred Chef Paul Lau Ping Lui, served amidst a spectacular view from the 102nd floor. Whilst the equally dramatic ‘Tosca‘, with its Romanesque decor and ambience, retains one star for its unique mix of innovation and tradition combined to create Italian gastronomy under Chef Pino Lavarra.
