Award-winning Restaurant Andre to close after 8 years
« on: October 11, 2017, 02:52:56 pm »
SINGAPORE — Chef Andre Chiang of the eponymous two-Michelin-starred  Restaurant Andre has announced that he will shut his business after  eight years.

His shocking announcement, which was made on his website on Tuesday (Oct  10), also said that Restaurant Andre’s last day of business will be on  Valentine's Day — Feb 14, 2018.
 
Chiang, 40, said that he wishes to return his Michelin stars and for his restaurant at 41, Bukit Pasoh Road not be included in the  2018 edition of the Michelin Guide Singapore.

Explaining the decision, Chiang said: “I’m a perfectionist and for the past 30 years of my career, I’ve been looking for that unrealistic 'moment of  perfection'; three Michelin stars, World’s Top 50 restaurant.

"Until now I realised, at this moment- It is perfect as it is.”

All these Michelin gradings and expectations will kill the passion of chefs.... thanks but no thanks, i'd rather patronize good restaurants with great chefs unencumbered by the trappings of michelin-whores ...
