The Fat Duck, a justified Michelin loser.
- Michael Lewis
It would be nice to think that the hotly tipped Fat Duck didn't recieve a second Michelin star because the Michelin Guide had finally started to view its operations as truly international and was applying the same criteria to British restaurants as it does to the rest of Europe.
Copying El Bulli and Michel Bras doesn't earn you a second Michelin star.
But should it even earn you one?
