I recently had a superb 3 star meal at Pergola in Rome, a restaurant with a spectacular setting on a hill overlooking the ancient city. In this most Italian of settings, serving impeccable modern Italian food, is a German chef, Heinz Beck. Click here to hear from the man himself.

The Michelin Guide season gets ever longer.  This time it is the turn of the fourth edition of the New York Guide (i.e. 2009).  The major news is the elevation of dazzlingly expensive sushi bar Masa to three stars from its previous two.  In addition, Momofuku Ko gains a second star, as do Adour (the new AlainDucasse venture) and Gilt.  The top of the tree is now as follows:

3 STARS
Jean Georges
Le Bernardin
Masa
Per Se

2 STARS
Adour
Daniel
Del Posto
Gilt
Gordon Ramsay
Momofuku Ko
Picholine
