30 by 30: 20 Michelin Stars

I enjoy beautiful foods. At most of these Michelin starred places, they take presentation and flavor into consideration.

It’s one of the many items on my list I’m trying to complete by the end of the year.  I mentioned it to a friend I was going to this event and they ended up joining me for the dinner!
