La Maison 1888 in Da Nang was named the "World's Best Fine Dining Hotel Restaurant 2022" at the 3rd annual World Culinary Awards in Dubai earlier this month. The restaurant at the InterContinental Sun Peninsula Resort beat eight other nominees to win the title. It is Vietnam's first dining experience to feature a Michelin-starred chef: Pierre Gagnaire.
La Maison's setting resembles the vast dining room of a villa or mansion that would have been occupied by a noble French family overseeing a sprawling estate during the colonial period.
The restaurant serves foreign specialties like wagyu beef and pate-croute with a touch of Vietnamese flavor created by using local Asian ingredients.
The World Culinary Awards is the sister event of the World Travel Awards, which has since 1993 acknowledged excellence in the travel and tourism industry. It has been described as the "travel industry's equivalent of the Oscars."
