A part of its 15-year anniversary celebration, Manresa is going on vacation, sort of, temporarily relocating from Los Gatos, California to France in a partnership with Relais & Châteaux. Last spring, the three-Michelin star restaurant was inducted into the Relais & Châteaux property club, and now chef/owner David Kinch is taking his relationship with the fine hotels and restaurants guide to the next level, collaborating on the roaming dinner series.
Celebrating the restaurant’s birthday earlier this summer and rolling out a new logo, Kinch hinted that a “road show” might be in the works. The details: Starting in late September, he and his team will head to Paris to cook collaboration meals at the two-Michelin star Le Taillevent, then to Provence and two-Michelin star L’Oustau de Baumanière, and finally to Marseille and the three-Michelin star Le Petit Nice. During the time abroad, the restaurant here in California will be closed.
Today, on Bastille Day, 15 years ago, @manresaca opened its doors for the first time. 15 years is a lifetime in our chosen métier, but I would not trade it for the world. There have been highs and deep valleys, two renovations and a fire that changed personal and professional perspectives and maturing priorities. Many amazing, passionate people have passed through our doors, both members of our teams past and present, guests and folks who have become our friends. I'm moved and so proud of what we have all accomplished together. We open today with surprises for our guests, a new look and logo courtesy of @sirjoshalot and @peteramayer, and with a rest of 2017 filled with some amazing events, of extraordinary guest chefs and a road show and Residency, all to be announced soon enough. We are blessed and lucky. And even though we are as good a restaurant as we have ever been right now, I also know the best is yet to come:) Thank you all and see you soon!:) xo David. ❤️ #manresa15anniversary #manresaresidency #relaischateaux #bastilleday #14juillet #manresa #threestars
