The City has many restaurants that have earned 1, 2 or 3 Michelin Stars, but one of them is very special: it is the smallest Michelin Star rated restaurant in the world.
Williamsburg’s Semilla prepares and offers its foods on only 465 square feet. Despite its diminutive size, the restaurant offers a variety of high-quality dishes focused on seasonal vegetables. They have just 18 coveted seats and you will find only 3 cooks and a dishwasher.
See how Semilla makes it work in this short video from our friends at Eater.
Necessity is the mother of invention at Semilla, an 18-seat tasting menu restaurant in Brooklyn’s South Williamsburg neighborhood. Limited kitchen space, a small staff, and a dedication to minimizing food waste overlap to yield a creative, very fresh menu, which was awarded a Michelin star last year. Watch the video above for a look at the space and the menu, and to hear more about restaurant’s philosophy from chef José Ramírez-Ruiz and pastry chef Pam Yung.
