Top Chef Andre Chiang to Return Michelin Stars, Close Restaurant Andre
Restaurant Andre has done it all. 2 Michelin Starred for two years in a row since the inauguration of Michelin Guide Singapore last year, consistently ranked at the top of the World's Top 50 Restaurant list, the top chef announced "I’m a perfectionist and for the past 30 years of my career, I’ve been looking for that unrealistic “moment of perfection”; Three Michelin stars, World’s Top 50 restaurant… until now I realized, at this moment- It is perfect as it is”
The restaurant which has been opened for 8 years, in a mirror of the chef's Octaphilosophy approach (8), will cease operations after 14 February 2018.
In addition, he had this explosive revelation to add, "I wish to kindly return my Michelin stars and also request to not be included in the 2018 edition of the Michelin Guide Singapore. Following Michelin Guide’s expansion in Asia, I understand that Michelin will soon launch new editions in Bangkok and Taiwan (where my other restaurant RAW is located in Taipei). As my hope is that RAW will be the pure place where I can focus on educating, developing others, and cooking after my retirement from Restaurant ANDRE, I also request that RAW not be included in the Michelin Guide Taiwan (or Taipei)."
A wish stemming from a desire to reprioritise his professional life, Andre Chiang says he wants to go back to where he started, to go back to cooking, have a balanced life and cook happily, again.
We wish him the best.
