Known for its legendary service and craftsmanship, the Ritz-Carlton will continue to define luxury fine dining by hosting the Stellar Dining Series for the second year in Asia Pacific.
It is a rare and remarkable alignment of its Michelin starred chefs, mixologists and patissiers, who will tour three of Asia Pacific’s gourmet cities in Tokyo, Kyoto and Guangzhou throughout September and October.
Each destination on the three-city tour will see the Ritz-Carlton chefs and artisans collaborate to present their signatures and create spectacular new dishes, orchestrating a constellation of dining events as well as exclusive masterclasses and cocktail craftsmanship.
