Le Bernardin, New York: 3 Michelin Stars, Modern French Food Tasting Like Singaporean

My experience at Le Bernardin is as experiences should be at fine-dining establishments – transformative and edifying. The finesse of Le Bernardin is even more pronounced when I compare this experience with that of mine at Waku Ghin. Even though both make the Top 50 Restaurants list, even though both aspire to simplicity, to the paying of homage to fresh, sumptuous ingredients, the latter did it in a way that was trite, uninspiring and perhaps even a little complacent. Le Bernardin, on the other hand, demonstrated elegance, beauty and lots of food-loving.
