RESTAURANT JEREMIE, one of the leading restaurants in Paris, received an honourable ‘2 Forks’ notation only eight months after opening its doors. The Michelin Guide is over 100 years old and is one of the most noteworthy accolades that any chef can add to his or her list of achievements.
While Michelin Stars are usually based on food, the “forks and spoons” rating focuses on the experience that the establishment offers its patrons. In order to receive a 2 fork rating, the designated Michelin employee needed to visit RESTAURANT JEREMIE and reflect on the comfort, luxuries and atmosphere of the restaurant.
“One of my foremost goals with RESTAURANT JEREMIE was to be able to offer customers fine dining in a relaxed, warm and friendly environment. The 2 forks rating shows that we have achieved this vision,” comments Chef Jérémie Tourdjman.
The Michelin employee came to visit the restaurant unexpectedly, which is common practice with these ratings. Tourdjman says that the experience that the establishment offers has remained consistent, since it opened until this day.
“We received the visit in February 2015, only eight months after the grand opening of RESTAURANT JEREMIE. Since inception, I’ve focused on hiring staff who are client-centric and able to ensure that patrons are welcomed and that they have a good time,” says Tourdjman.
Tourdjman is very involved with the day-to-day management of the restaurant, the menu and the dishes that are offer. The menu changes regularly in order to keep regular clients on their toes and in order to ensure that new, seasonal dishes are always popping up on the menu. The attention that the restaurant has drawn in the press and from formal institutions such as Michelin is a testament to the professionalism, experience and culinary excellence that is on offer at RESTAURANT JEREMIE.
