Former chef at The Fat Duck, Per Se and chef de cuisine at Noma, Matt Orlando knows his way around a kitchen.
In 2013 he opened his own place: Amass, and months before the launch it was hyped by the press. Michelin ** All the plates were picturesquely beautiful, the food was flawless and the menu as a whole was composed with wit and distinction.
Actually, the strong focus was what impressed me the most.
Michelin * Formel B still holds one star but has changed the concept since its beginning as French-inspired conservative gourmet restaurant (please note: my blog post from 2007 on Formel B was written about Formel B as it was then).
It’s very elegant and delicious food, the sorroundings are nice and relaxed, and the service is among the best in class.
