Lesson to learn: 2-Michelin-starred Restaurant Andre to close. WHY?
“I’m a perfectionist and for the past 30 years of my career, I’ve been looking for that unrealistic ‘moment of perfection’: Three Michelin stars, World’s Top 50 restaurant … Until now I realised, at this moment - it is perfect as it is,” Mr Chiang said in a statement on the restaurant’s website.
“You might ask, why now?,” Mr Chiang said in his statement.
“Because this is the best moment of my life. I walked into the restaurant, into the kitchen, I see everyone, everything in order, polished, flawless.
"I have never seen any restaurant like this. Every one of them is everything I hoped for. This is the perfect team that I will not see anywhere else again, and we have achieved everything we want to achieve.”
Lesson: You do not need an award to prove you are the best or have reached your goal.
