Bon Bon owner Nuno Diogo has celebrated the restaurant’s accomplishment which has come after a change in kitchen leadership and at the end of an “atypical and very difficult year on every level for the restaurant sector.”

As Nuno Diogo pointed out, this was the seventh straight year that Bon Bon has received a Michelin star.
