Stars, Stars, and more stars

So what is 5 Star to you guys...do you have any idea the difference between stars, diamonds, Michelin, Mobil, Zagat, NY Times, etc?

Okay, then I will tell you...

In the US there are several rating systems being used, to the point it seems confusing or unnecassary...
  • Mobil Travel Guide awards "stars" as does the Michelin Guide, Mobil goes to 5 Stars, Michelin highest is 3 Stars. As for Mobil, the difference between a 4 star property and a 5 start property are significant. I am not as familiar with Michelin as they are primarily used in Europe, only coming to America in the last few years. Thomas Keller's The French Laundry and Per Se are 3 Michelin Stars, making him one of the few to have two restaurants with 3 stars, and I think the only one in the US. Mobil awards Start for Food and/or Accommodations.
  • AAA awards Diamonds, 5 being the highest. Again the differences between 4 and 5 are significant and they also award for Food and/or Accommodations. The standards for 5 Diamonds vs. 5 Stars (Mobil) are slightly less there fore it holds slightly less "prestige" then having the Mobil 5 Star Award. The Inn at Little Washington in Virginia, was the first establishment in the Mobil Travel Guides history ever to receive two 5 Star awards, food & accommodations. The Inn has maintained 5 Diamonds & 5 Stars for both Food & Accommodations for the past 18+ years, that is no easy accomplishment if you ever saw what an inspector is looking for.
  • Well then there are local Newspapers, The NY Times 1- 4 Stars, The Washington Post 1- 4 stars, Washingtonian, bla bla bla.
  • Zagat...they are unique, using reader surveys to develop their rating, 0-30 for Food, Decor, Service, or a total of 90 points possible...and here again The Inn at Little Washington ranks high, #1 restaurant in the Nations Capital
  • Travel & Leisure Magazine, Worlds Best Awards, The Wine Spectator Awards, and many more (oh and by the way, TIALW...#1 Hotel in the World for food by T&L Mag 2008 )
  • Of course there are membership organizations also, such as the prestigious Relais & Chataeux http://www.relaischateaux.com/en/ and the very cool S.Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants http://www.theworlds50best.com/awards/1-50-winners , What makes the S.Pellegrino awards neat is they are voted in by their peers, chefs & restaurateurs.
Some interesting info found in Wiki about "stars":
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_(classification)

I recommend Zagat, Mobil, Relais & Chateaux as good references, but at the end of the day its what you think that matters

Okay...I don't know what the point of writing all that was

Hi Debuse,
I guess Chef thought people rate restuarants by the meal they provide.

The visual presentation of the food is more what was being discussed???

I do agree - never insult a chef. Art with attitude and sharp (and blunt) objects. I think I will sign off now.
cheerio

Sadly, I say most ratings are ignorant of the presentation and more about the service then the food. I could be wrong though.

Watched this Disney movie last night.. "ratatouille" EWWWWW! rats as chefs! I wonder if the Disney people really understand the vile nature of rats.

Ah yes, Ratatouille...a great movie. There's so much neat references in the movie, just the description of the classic kitchen brigade is worth showing in class LOL. I liked the pun created by using rats to cook, cracks me up. Incidentally Thomas Keller (arguably one of toady's most influential chefs) was the consultant on the film, and many of the dishes were first created in his kitchen then digitized for the movie.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
