Dani García brings a third Michelin star to Marbella
Javier Nieto - Dec 17, 2018 - Marbella Lifestyle
According to the inimitable culinary institution created by the Michelin Guide, Dani García was recently awarded a third extraordinary star for his “unique way of reinventing Andalusian gastronomy in a contemporary form.” The chef’s eponymous restaurant in Marbella is only one of two establishments in the region to ever achieve the legendary industry rating.
García is also the only new Spanish chef to have been honoured with three Michelin stars in the 2019 Spain and Portugal Guide. He has achieved Michelin’s highest accolade for the “exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey” that is created and served at Dani García in the prestigious Puente Romano on Marbella’s Golden Mile.
“I cried with joy with my mother, my daughters, my partner, my team. I am very happy. After 20 years of work, this is another step up. Now I will enjoy the moment and reflect,” García stated after receiving the award.
The master of gastronomy celebrated with a special lunch this week at his outstanding restaurant where he prepared dishes that best define his work to date, such as ‘Iberian ham dashi’—an Andalusian take on Japanese soup.
The Dani García restaurant is situated within the grounds of the Puente Romano Beach Resort & Spa that is also home to his tapas emporium, Bibo, which serves traditional Spanish dishes with a twist. García’s cooking is international, cosmopolitan and regional to this part of Spain, having been inspired by his Andalusian roots and many experiences travelling around the world.
