With three of Michelin’s most prominent guides unveiled earlier in the year, the exceptional restaurants of Four Seasons are embracing a new year and a renewed commitment to excellence. Sparkling under 27 Michelin stars across 19 restaurants, Four Seasons impressively maintains the most Michelin Stars of any single luxury hospitality brand.
From chefs and kitchen teams to sommeliers and mixologists, Four Seasons employees have found new and creative ways to offer Michelin-starred experiences, whether on-site, to go, or even in the comfort of one’s own home.
A top example being, on New Year’s Eve, Parisians had the opportunity to dine on a multi-course menu prepared by the chefs of Le Cinq, paired with wines from the legendary cellar of Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris. Elsewhere, in Hong Kong, Chef Chan Yan Tak’s famous puddings from Lung King Heen were available for takeout to celebrate the Lunar New Year, and Florentines were able to enjoy a romantic dinner for two from Il Palagio for Valentine’s Day, with surprise touches to create a memorable evening at home.
Elsewhere around the world, Four Seasons restaurants are offering myriad options for takeout and delivery, off-site catering, and everyday enjoyment at home or on the go. Whether taking out or dining in, guests can take comfort that the enhanced Four Seasons global health and safety program, Lead With Care, is implemented at every step of the guest and employee journey.
