Michelin Guide Seoul will organize a gourmet fair in Seoul from Oct. 28-29, gathering together the restaurants introduced on last year’s Seoul edition of the gastronomical guide.

The three-starred La Yeon of The Shilla Seoul Hotel will participate in the fair alongside 18 other restaurants, including French restaurant L’amitie, modern Italian restaurant Ristorante Eo, modern Korean restaurant Mingles, and Chef Tony Yoo -- formerly of one-starred modern Korean restaurant Twenty Four Seasons.

The fair will be divided into three areas: Gourmet Zone, where the restaurants will feature their special pop-up menus; Dining Zone, where the visitors can enjoy their dishes; and Market zone, where the relevant brands will set up their booths.
