The Korean-born Chef Hooni Kim was at some point of his life destined to be Dr. Hooni Kim! He indeed went to medical school when he realized that the title “Chef” was a better fit for him.

Lupa Osteria Romana

Greenwich Village, New York By September 27, 2017 No Comments

Lupa is my friend’s daughter’s boyfriend’s roommate’s favorite Italian restaurant in New York City! Even if you cannot follow all that, I must say I am glad it is because Lupa is actually an amazing restaurant. The aforementioned friend was visiting from Texas and I had not seen her since we both moved from Paris a year ago. Lupa seemed for whatever reason the perfect place for our reunion.

Philippe Starck is for me the most surprising and inspiring architect and designer of all time. I have seen many of his works in many different cities, and his restaurants always have a vibrant and elegant atmosphere. Some are more eccentric, like Miss Kō on George V in Paris, some are more elegant, like Bon on rue de la Pompe in Paris as well, and some others are more fun like the Mama Shelter in Bordeaux.

He opened his restaurant when he was 23 years old and earned his third Michelin star when he was 48, in 1994. At that time he was part of the French elite chefs, with Bernard Loiseau, Guy Savoy, and Alain Ducasse.
