Reviews: "Michelin Stars may very well add to that body of knowledge, and even give us an intimate glance at the inner-most thoughts of the featured chefs—in the trailer Daniel Humm, whose Eleven Madison Park was voted the best restaurant in the world this year, even admits, “Michelin three stars, it is something that you don’t even try to dream of.” Food and Wine
"...you'd think trying to get a Michelin star was a matter of life or death wrapped inside a nervous breakdown presented with a generous handful of dread. And it kind of is!" Esquire
