Restaurant Sat Bains has been inducted into Les Grandes Tables du Monde – an illustrious collection of gastronomic restaurants in the world. The two-Michelin-starred Nottingham restaurant was the only new addition to this year’s guide from the UK.
The restaurant, run by husband-and-wife team Sat and Amanda Bains – is now one of only eight establishments in the UK included in the esteemed group, which features venues such as The Waterside Inn, Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester and The Fat Duck. He accepted the invitation to join the guide at The Ritz in Paris this week.
Sat Bains commented: “Since my early years as a chef I have admired Les Grande Tables du Monde guidebook, and, after spending my Roux Scholarship stage in France at Les Jardin des Sens, my respect for it was cemented. To be part of the guide and be among such an elite group of restaurants from the UK, is incredibly gratifying for myself and the team at Restaurant Sat Bains who work tirelessly to ensure we deliver the ultimate in hospitality for our guests who come from all corners of the globe”.
Other restaurants to be inducted into the 2018 guide included; Seta in Milan, Restaurant Chapeau Rouge in Dijon, France and Le Bernardin in New York, to name a few.
Les Grandes Tables du Monde brings together a select group of the most distinguished and celebrated restaurants in the world – all of which have long-standing two or three Michelin star ratings. Originally established by six Parisian chefs, with the logo spontaneously drawn by Jean Cocteau on a tablecloth in the Le Grand Véfour restaurant. The organisation now has 174 establishments in 25 countries, including the ten new members joining the association this year.
