Pierre Gagnaire Seoul

Well, this seems to have passed through my filters(Google Alerts) until today. Pierre Gagnaire who holds 3 Michelin Stars at his flagship restaurant in Paris has opened a restaurant in Lotte Hotel here.

There isn't too much information out there just yet, specifically, no sample menu, but the prices are out and are, as you might expect, on the high side. However, if the food is up to scratch and sniffing at the door of Michelin quality then the prices are immaterial. Quality and luxury in every sector is a pricey business and the same is true of food and drink.

Some of my greatest eating experiences have been hugely expensive,thanks Mam and Dad, but have been worth every penny. If this restaurant is serving consistently excellent food then as a very occasional treat why not? I will be sure to check it out as soon as my bank balance has stopped reeling.
