SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, Turo, the world’s largest peer-to-peer car sharing marketplace, and The MICHELIN® Guide, are unveiling their Drive to Table experience composed of culinary road trips to four MICHELIN-Starred restaurants in California and New York. Beginning today, Turo guests who book select vehicles every Saturday from November 5 through December 18, will open the doors to exclusive experiences at Barndiva in Healdsburg, Bell’s in Los Alamos, Al Coro in Manhattan, and Clover Hill in Brooklyn.
Drawing from Michelin’s road trip heritage and Turo’s unrivaled vehicle selection for travelers, guests who book one of the select electric vehicles listed on Turo will unlock an exclusive weekend road trip complete with a behind-the-scenes culinary experience from one of these top restaurants, a coveted dinner reservation for two, and a one-night stay at a Tablet Hotel. In a nod to each chef’s commitment to sustainable cooking and Turo’s commitment to strengthening EV adoption in the U.S., the Drive to Table experience will feature electric vehicles to minimize each road trip’s carbon footprint.
“The Drive to Table experiences, conceived by The MICHELIN® Guide and Turo, will deliver exclusive culinary road-trip opportunities to New York and California this fall,” said Cara Cornelius, Director of Food and Travel Experiences for Michelin Americas. “How often are you able to spend a day behind the wheel of an amazing vehicle, dine at a MICHELIN-Starred restaurant, and cap it off with a stay at a luxurious, boutique hotel?
