A year ago today, I wrote about a wonderful restaurant called Mirazur that the wife and I visited on the honeymoon. To celebrate the one year anniversary of that post, I bring you some not so surprising news:
Yeah, that's right. Mauro Colegreco has been named the top chef if France. And not just by me, some guy named "GaultMillau" totally agrees. He knows his stuff.....and there's a chance that GaultMillau is actually former NFL speedster Willie Gault's "classy" pen name, but I'm not totally sure.... (FYI - I do realize GaultMillau is not actually a person.)
So - who took my advice and made the trip? None? Well screw you guys.
At the time, I referred to the Menu Dégustation as "the best bargain since Matt Stairs". A year later, Matt Stairs is playing in the World Series (with the Phillies, natch) and Mirazur is raking in the accolades. Holy effing Nostradamus.
A recent check of the Mirazur website shows that the Menu Dégustation has skyrocketed in price, from 75€ to 80€ - so, don't say I didn't warn you. If you extrapolate the same 6.67% annual increase, you'll be paying as follows:
Oct 23, 2010 - 91.02€
Oct 23, 2020 - 173.55€
Oct 23, 2050 - 1,203.09€
Oct 23, 2100 - 30,320.23€
Oct 23, 3000 - 510,015,997,207,026,000,000,000,000,000.00€
My god. Why wait till the year 3000 when you can go now at a fraction of the price? You're a friggin idiot if you think half a nonillion dollars is a good deal for dinner. Go now because 80€ is a steal.
And while we are the topic of anniversaries, this is the 15th anniversary of the HR. The photo below says it all.
