Fewer than 100 restaurants in the entire world have received Michelin's coveted three-star rating, and even fewer enjoy the renown of Restaurant Guy Savoy. The Paris eatery is also the winner of a Luxist Awards' Readers' Choice Award in the best international fine dining category.
Guy Savoy opened his first Paris restaurant in 1980 at the age of 27. Within five years, Savoy had earned two Michelin stars and Savoy was well on his way to becoming one of the world's most celebrated chefs. In 1987, he moved into the current Restaurant Guy Savoy location on Rue Troyon-all the while helping to establish Nouvelle Cuisine, a lighter approach to French cooking. Savoy earned a third Michelin star in 2002 and soon expanded internationally, opening a Las Vegas location in 2006 (a Luxist Awards nominee in the Best Domestic category).
