The 2014 Michelin Guide to Germany has been announced. The big news is that there's a new three-star restaurant in Germany, Restaurant Überfahrt Christian Jürgense. The Rottach-Egern restaurant helmed by chef Christian Jürgense is up from two stars, upping Germany's three-star count from 10 last year to 11, more than any other European country except France. There are three new two-stars: Schlossberg, Tiger-Gourmet, and FACIL. There are also 39 new one-star restaurants this year, and the press release below points out that four of those restaurants have women as their head chefs. This brings Germany's total count to 11 three-stars, 37 two-stars, 226 one-stars, and 452 Bib Gourmands, 51 of which are new.

News of Restaurant Überfahrt Christian Jürgense's third star is not entirely unexpected. Yesterday, news of the restaurant's third star was circulating on Twitter, with food writer Elizabeth Auerbach joining in the early reporting. In her recent writeup of Restaurant Überfahrt, Auerbach gives the restaurant a rating of 97 out of 100 and concludes "Christian Jürgens' cooking is clearly aiming for a third Michelin star and I wouldn't be at all surprised if he gets it." By way of context, Western Japan has 14 three-stars, Italy has eight,Great Britain has four, New York City has seven, and San Francisco has two. Below, the full list of winners and the press release:
