The Basement Bistro

A 16-seated restaurant, named The Basement Bistro situated in New York City has been dubbed as the world’s most exclusive restaurant thanks to its 10-year waiting list.

The eponymously named restaurant is run by Chef Damon Baehrel who grows every component of every preparation created by him on his 12-acre property, the New York Daily News reported.

Baehrel does not hire any other chef and is the only one making food for his customers, many of whom have travelled from 50 different countries to taste his food.

Baehrel said that he came up with the idea of his unique restaurant over 25 years ago when he realised that everything he needed was already on the property.


He added that he is the luckiest person in the world because he gets to create a truly original cuisine for guests that are not based on any other existing cuisine.
