A Star is Born
Siren by Chef Robert Wiedmaier Earns a Prestigious Michelin Star
WASHINGTON, D.C. - On Thursday, Sept. 13, 2018, the prestigious Michelin Guide awarded Siren by chef Robert Wiedmaier of The Darcy Washington DC, Curio Collection by Hilton their newest accolade – a Michelin star. This marks the first for Wiedmaier who has established 10 award-winning restaurants over the course of his illustrious 30-plus year career.
“We are truly humbled and honored to receive this award,” says Robert Wiedmaier. “Achieving this status is something I attribute to the collective input of our passionate team. We seek to bring to Siren diverse tastes from the world’s waterways, hunting for the most beloved seafood, allowing the culinary team to tempt themselves creatively.” His corporate chef and partner Brian McBride adds, “We are so pleased to introduce some of the best-kept secrets in seafood, globally, to our patrons. We are tremendously grateful to our loyal guests for supporting us in our efforts to strive beyond expectations to deliver the freshest and most inventive dishes.”
Seafood is the main event at the seductive Siren, and Wiedmaier and McBride make the deliberate choice to work with a select few of the finest ingredients, ensuring that quality never gives way to quantity. Each day’s catch inspires its own preparation, responding to constant shifts with heightened creativity. Their small, constantly evolving menu allows for a free diver in Bangor, Maine, for example, to send down to DC the 10 sea urchins he brought up that morning: 10 fortunate guests will enjoy them, and then it's over – until the next windfall from the sea. From open waters to open skies and fields, the menu is prepared according to the conviction that artful flavors and presentation should entice the palate and please the senses.
The call of Siren beckons you with the promise of a culinary excursion like no other…
