Michelin man

Waikato-born chef de cuisine Josh Emett has won two Michelin stars for his menu at Gordon Ramsay at The London, the celebrity chef’s new venture in New York. Emett oversees the menu design for Ramsay’s eponymous restaurant at The London as well as two other venues within the same hotel, and won special praise from Michelin reviewers for his seven-course Menu Prestige tasting option. “Getting three stars after four, five, six years is an achievement … so this is really amazing,” said Emett in a NZ Herald interview. Gordon Ramsay at The London has also been named Top Newcomer and fourth-best restaurant in the Hotel Dining category of the Zagat survey, which is voted for by members of the public. “We’re getting fantastic feedback from diners,” Emett admitted, “We’re having a great week.”
