Langdon Hall's world's best restaurant rating - What a joke!!! Sacrilegious and insulting!!

Charles Yu | Apr 17, 2011 03:58 PM

Langdon Hall, in the latest S. Pellegrino World's 100 Best restaurant, was voted #77. This was ahead of some of the best Michelin 3* restaurants on earth eg., Quintessence ( Tokyo ), Alain Ducasse at the Dorchester ( London ) and Le Pre Catelan ( Paris )!!!

I have eaten in ALL of the aforementioned establishments. NO WAY is the food and/or whole package experience of Langdon Hall better than the other three!!! In fact, when I ate at Alain Ducasse and Le Pre Calelan a few years back, they were not even 3 stars but their food was already way better ( innovation, presentation, smell and taste ) than what I had at LH a few months ago!! Service of LH, though good by Canadian fine dining standard was no where near the professionalism and attentiveness of the above 3*s. In fact, its not even better than the ' Old Splendido' with Yannick, Carlo and Adley running the floor!!
Man! Sometimes I do miss the 'whole package' - wine pairing tasting menu experience of the 'Old David Lee's Splendido'!!
