Renowned for the most exquisite food in the world, it’s no surprise Paris boasts an impressive number of Michelin-starred restaurants. It’s a little known fact that awarding a restaurant one star is designated by Michelin to restaurants that are very good and worth visiting when in town. Two stars are designated to restaurants for which are worth venturing off-route. Three stars are awarded to restaurants so special, they are worth travelling to a certain location to experience.
Insignia has taken the crème-de-la-crème (pun intended) of Paris restaurants and laid them out. Highly recommended by Michelin, they are certain to make patrons glad they made the detour to Paris.
