Believe it or not, there are some restaurants across the world where booking for menu is just very difficult. There are places where it will take a year to get your order to you. How long would you want to wait to get into a restaurant and order what you want? Is it in one hour? One week? One month? Or even one year?
Let us take a look at the menu for the hardest to book restaurants in the world!
1. Ultraviolet, Shanghai – This is a multi-sensory banquet experience that features course-themed music, radiance show, and names of diners inscribed on the table. Chicken and eggs are available at Ultraviolet. The restaurant was established by Paul Pairet in 2012. In addition, it provides 20-course menus and the cost per person is $450.
2. Per Se, New York City – The price of a nine-course prix fixe dinner amounted to $150 when this restaurant started in 2004. The number per person without service is now $325. If you are one of those who desire to indulge on the cooking of Keller, he still have his Laundry in Northern California, where the prix fixe is just $310 is still available.
3. Restaurant Guy Savoy, Monnaie Paris – This restaurant belongs to a Michelin 3 star chef. Guy Savoy relocated his Parisian restaurant to the 18th century building in 2015. There is opportunity for diners to opt for a carte and spend just $250 for dinner per person.
Although the restaurant provides more than a few prix fixe choices, the ne plus ultra is an 18-course Encouragement and Modernization menu comprising of artichoke soup and roasted lobster with black truffle amounting to about $525. However, Restaurant Guy Savoy located at Caesars Palace provides Encouragement and Modernization menu at the rate of $375 for those who want to spend a bit less.
4. Chef’s Table at Brooklyn Fare, New York: This is an 18-seat restaurant and one of the toughest tables to book in the world. This is because it is the only three Michelin star in Brooklyn and that the 15-course tasting menu of Cesar Ramirez changes everyday, which is inspired by the French and Japanese cuisine. $306 is the price for dining there.
5. Urasawa, Beverly Hills, California – It is no surprise that eponymous Los Angeles restaurant is well thought out to be the West Coat edition of the Masa of New York, bearing in mind the fact that chef Hiro Urasawa trained under Masa Tamayaka.
However, Urasawa amounts to a meager amount of $395 excluding drinks for its 30-course version, while Masa charges $595 for its lavish Omakase. On the other hand, obtaining a reservation may not be easy in view of the fact that Rodeo Drive restaurant has just 10 seats.
6. L’Arpege, Paris – The menu here comprises of the hot-cold egg amounting to $400. However, the price is more reduced to $315, if you just want to experience the taste of the tantalizing vegetarian prix fixe for which Passard is as well distinguished.
7. Rao, New York – This restaurant is more celebrated for its many private jet setting celebrities that patronize the place frequently. Getting a table at Rao is a hell, no matter the amount you have. Just give up now because the whole tables are already booked and there is nothing you can do to get even one. Unless you have a very strong connection with someone who knows the owner of the restaurant. This particular joint has only 10 tables, which are all owned by somebody.
