I might never dine at Le Bernardin….one of New Yorks best fine dining restaurants.
To get a Michelin 3 star rating means it is a superb organization. Headed by Chef Eric Ripert, Le Bernardin is easily a multi-million dollar business.
Being a 3-star restaurant also means that every day….every meal needs to be perfect….not just above average….but absolutely perfect (3 star ratings usually means 3 star prices).
From a business perspective, Le Bernardin is a well established business (started in 1986). Eric Ripert is a full partner (since 1996) and primarily responsible for what many call the best fish restaurant in New York, if not the world.
To be the best….requires excellent leadership…..commitment to exceptional product/service….outstanding talent/people and the willingness to continually improve.
