The Best New Restaurant + Bar Openings Around The Globe This February


noma My, my, my, how time flies! I can hardly believe February is already here. I launched my Dining Agenda Column for Departures last month, and it seems like SO much is happening in the world of food in 2015 in just the first two months.

A few highlights from this edition include: Nordic chef Rene Redzepi, four-time topper of San Pellegrino 50 Best List, has temporarily relocated his Copenhagen restaurant Noma to the Mandarin Oriental Tokyo; the Michelin Guide releasing their rankings for France, taking Alain Ducasse's reopened Plaza Athénée down to two stars from the previous three; and Blue Bottle finally opening their first international outpost in Tokyo.

There's plenty more to check out in my column, which gives you the absolutely essential restaurant openings and announcements around the world, plus this month's most delicious, not-to-miss events. Please read on right this way.
