Milan Čotra, Executive Chef of Hyatt Regency Belgrade

Officially Among The Best

Thanks to a fantastic team led by a top chef and specialities that represent a combination of traditional Serbian and international cuisine, restaurant Metropolitan Grill was recently included in the 2023 Michelin Guide

Restaurant Metropolitan Grill each week organises Sunday lunch – The Food Affair, the concept of which as of this year includes a culinary journey around the world. In addition, the restaurant also has its Chef’s Table, as an innovative experience of preparing specialities from a carefully devised menu, together with unforgettable socialising and learning about food.

What was the ace up your sleeve that led to your inclusion in the 2023 Michelin Guide? What is it that amazed even those who have the most refined palates?

Our main advantage is love for our work, as well as mutual assistance and the incredible positive energy that encourages the team to improve and advance.

Our specialities are a fusion of traditional Serbian and international cuisine, so our culinary team conveys the authenticity of culture with every morsel. It is a great honour for us to have been included in the 2023 Michelin Guide and to have thus received confirmation for our many years of effort and creativity.

Are you among those who find joy in constantly discovering other cultures, lifestyles, foods etc.? If that wasn’t the case, you surely wouldn’t be able to boast of having such rich and enviable experience, a wonderful team and satisfied guests.

I consider it the responsibility of every individual to familiarise themselves with different cultures and occasionally change environments in such a way that they selflessly share their experiences with others. It is my pleasure to share my rich experience with colleagues in my home country, and to then together create a unique combination of local authenticity and global diversity that every guest has the opportunity to experience.

Chef’s table represents an innovative concept of preparing specialities from our carefully devised menu in the restaurant’s kitchen with our team of experienced chefs

Every week at the Metropolitan Grill restaurant we organise Sunday lunch – The Food Affair, the concept of which has – as of this year – included a culinary journey around the world. We thus have opportunities each month to host chefs from different countries who prepare food live in front of the guests. Alongside fantastic specialities like oysters, sushi, steak and traditional dishes, guests can enjoy live music, while the youngest can participate in culinary activities and creative workshops.

As we’re already on the topic of your team, we can’t avoid asking you to tell us more about the unique concept that you implement called Chef’s table… What is it about?

We are a team that works continuously to connect and improve interpersonal relations, so I can boast of the fact that we contribute every day to building the careers of excellent young chefs. Chef’s table represents an innovative concept of preparing specialities from our carefully devised menu in the restaurant’s kitchen with our team of experienced chefs. This is an activity that encompasses food preparation, unforgettable socialising and learning about food, thus creating a great experience. We are proud that we are able to transfer the atmosphere of our team to others and create an environment that’s ideal for team building activities, celebrations or a unique experience for all lovers of excellent food.
