For future dreams, I will have to travel to Paris, where the Mandarin Oriental Paris will open its doors on rue Saint-Honoré, a few meters from Place Vendôme by mid-2011, or to the Maldives for some R & R; or perhaps Moscow.
A recent stay at the Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas confirmed that the Mandarin Group is also very focused on what is happening in its restaurants. Pierre Gagnaire’s Twist restaurant in Vegas made our 2010 Top 10 New Restaurants in the US. Top toque Carme Ruscalleda runs Moments in the Mandarin Oriental Barcelona, while Thierry Marx will open a restaurant in the Paris outpost. At the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park in London, which already features Daniel Boulud’s Bar Boulud, Heston Blumenthal of The Fat Duck will open his first London restaurant later this year.
Two of the chain’s restaurants made our 2010 Top 40 US restaurants: L’Espalier of the Mandarin Oriental Boston with chef Frank McClelland (which also graces our 2010 Top 10 Hotel Restaurant list) and CityZen with chef Eric Ziebold from the Mandarin Oriental Washington DC.
Having great restaurants adds a tremendous value to the Mandarin Oriental’s motto, “Offering 21st century luxury with Oriental charm.”
