Do you want to know what are the best luxury restaurants in the world for, who knows, spend an amazing night with your soul mate, a business dinner or just a familiar dinner? Some of them maybe are from your country or the country where you are spending your vacations!
Here I leave some ideas to have a different dinner full of luxury, happiness and unique experiences.
- Michel Bras Toya, Lake Toya, Japan
This restaurant has stunning panoramic views of the volcanic caldera lake and provides the two-Michelin star food coming out of the kitchen. The latest version of the top-tier “discovery and nature” menu features dishes like grilled duck foie gras and marrow pan fried celtuce with yuba and black truffle vinaigrette.
- Masa, New York City
Two complementary principles reign at Chef Masa Takayama’s eponymous restaurant—simplicity and the essential flavor of each ingredient. The dishes on the tasting menu may be austere in presentation, but the lack of crazy flourishes is part of the appeal, especially when it comes to the parade of exotic seafood.
- Kitcho, Kyoto
This Japanese restaurant offers a style of dining where many people believe that is to be the epitome of carefully conceived and executed Japanese cuisine. Third-generation chef Kunio Tokuoka delivers an elegant series of plates showcasing seasonal, local ingredients, such as abalone and tofu with sea urchin, which guests savor in their own private tatami room.
- Le Pré Catelan, Paris
Most of the places on this list are here thanks to their Prix fixe-only rates, but this spot has earned the distinction through its à la carte options: Duck foie gras goes for €100 (about $117), lobster with French caviar asks €145 ($170), and a tart-like lemon meringue dessert is €40 ($47).
- Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester, London
Currently led by executive chef Jocelyn Herland, the contemporary restaurant commands a sizable fee thanks to its founders and Michelin three-star rating. A six-course seasonal tasting menu, which currently includes confit duck foie gras and Dorset crab.
- Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée, Paris
The dining room of Alain Ducasse’s restaurant in Plaza Athénée is practically a work of art, where diners can sit within stainless steel “shells” below chandeliers made of thousands of crystals. The menu focuses on healthy and environmentally friendly food.
- SubliMotion, Ibiza, Spain
This 12-seat restaurant at the Hard Rock Hotel charges a whopping for its 20-course dinner. Michelin-starred chef Paco Roncero’s ultra-sensory experience marries food, art, and technology. Open only during the island’s summer season (June 1– September 30), the immersive eatery has a menu that changes annually.
- Ithaa Undersea Restaurant, Maldives
Situated more than 16 feet below sea level in the Indian Ocean, this glass-enclosed restaurant is a pleasing to the eyes as it is to the palette. The spot is only big enough to fit 14 guests, who take in 180-degree views of coral reefs and sharks while eating spicy sea snails and veal tenderloin from the menu.
- Aragawa, Tokyo
Luxuriously marbled wagyu at this subdued venue draws meat lovers from around the world. The sticker shock can range from $261 to $313 if you’re ordering from the prix fixe menu.
- Ultraviolet, Shanghai, China
Paul Pairet’s immersive restaurant errs on the side of high-tech haute cuisine: Ten diners per night gather around one table, where 20 courses are served alongside a multi-sensory atmosphere of music, video, scents, and simulations. The experience intriguing enough, the dishes rotate frequently to ensure guests can’t be spoiled by anything they read online.
- Maison Pic, Drôme, France
Chef Anne-Sophie Pic holds the distinction of being one of six female chefs in the world to run a Michelin three-star kitchen, and her inventive nine-course Menu Essential proves why. One bite during your meal might encompass Mediterranean rouget in a saffron broth, while the next might feature deer marinated in sake lees.
- Restaurant Le Meurice, Paris
Another of Alain Ducasse’s properties, this Versailles-inspired dining room oozes opulence, from the antique mirrors and crystal chandeliers to the five-course Collection menu. You can taste three specialties (perhaps the langoustines or ‘Ikejime’ line-caught sea bass), and a selection of cheeses and desserts.
