But not all French gastronomes were quite as convinced of his genius.

The influential culinary website Atabula said his cooking lacked "coherence and emotion", adding that although his restaurant was "a good two-star table, it's a thin three-star one".

Of course the haters simply cannot stand to see a foreigner, especially a Japanese person, show the world that they too can be masters of French cuisine. Good for him and congratulations!

Not important news. This is yet another nonsense that is making rounds in the news media since last few years. Eat what you like. Like what you eat. Simple.

Don't care who the chef is, a Michelin star tells me to avoid that restaurant at all costs because it will be a rip-off.

Why is he described as "flamboyant"? Because he has dyed his hair?

Congratulations to him and his wife.

Japan doing well. What else is new?

Yes, died blond hair makes you flamboyant.  I often wonder how all of these chefs get a work permit or visa to work in EU (and vice versa)?  Is there a special category for chefs or similar?

It’s relatively easy to get a working visa as a chef globally ( not everywhere but many countries ) as long as you have some sort of certification and/or manage to secure a job at a restaurant...

I am curious of your experience, which ones have you tried ?
