The world’s most Michelin-starred chef, Joel Robuchon, died at the age of 73 early Monday morning after a battle with cancer.
The French celebrity chef owned restaurants across the world, spanning three continents. His famous dining establishments are found in cities such as Paris, Monaco, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Las Vegas — to name a few.
Known for his ability to make simple dishes with few ingredients into haute cuisine, Robuchon’s first restaurant opened in Paris in 1981. It was the first restaurant to ever win three Michelin stars. Soon after, he was bestowed the illustrious “Chef of the Century” title from the restaurant guide Gault & Millau, CNN reports.
“Joël Robuchon died today, but his 32 Michelin stars shine bright in the constellation of world gastronomy,” a statement from French President Emmanuel Macron released on Monday said. “His name and style embody French cuisine all over the world, they symbolize a lifestyle, a demand for a job well done, and convey the richness of our traditions.”
Below is a list of Robuchon’s legendary restaurants to try in your next travel destination:
