Hillary Dixler Canavan is Eater's restaurant editor and the author of the publication's debut book, Eater: 100 Essential Restaurant Recipes From the Authority on Where to Eat and Why It Matters (Abrams, September 2023). Her work focuses on dining trends and the people changing the industry — and scouting the next hot restaurant you need to try on Eater's annual Best New Restaurant list.

People with money to spend, take note: The British luxury retail site VeryFirstTo is partnering with travel site HolidaysPlease in offering a travel package in which guests can visit every three star Michelin restaurant in six months. For a cool £182,000 (roughly $274,500, priced per couple), vacationers will embark on a six month journey around the world in which they will dine at each of the 107 three star restaurants. The cost of the trip includes business class travel, luxury hotel accommodations, and the cost of the meals including "house wine." Considering a song at the Fountains of Bellagio costs a couple $250,000, this seems like a good price?

The trip is spread out across 12 countries and, according to the Telegraph, vacation-goers will spend a significant amount of time in Japan, New York, and Paris. While certainly decadent, the itinerary also seems punishing. Travelers will be "visiting approximately one restaurant every other day, you will have time to savour spectacular culinary experiences while taking in the local sites of each destination." Of course, site seeing might be difficult if travelers are in a perpetual food coma brought about by "tyrannical" tasting menus and general gluttony.
