With its coveted star, Eleven is a member of Lisbon's very select Michelin club. Actually, it was only a matter of time before chef Joachim Koerper officially reclaimed his crown as one of the Portugal's most accomplished kitchen wizards – his menus have always shined and the restaurant remains one of the most acclaimed in the land. Koerper's forte is Mediterranean cuisine using fresh, locally grown southern European produce, and the celebratory Michelin Star Menu is typical of his surreal touch in blending texture with flavour. It also speaks of a mischievous sense of humour: look out for the Alentejo pork race "chasing truffles". As for the wines, it seems every vineyard in the country and beyond is vying for a place at the table.
