This morning, Michelin released its new 2016 guide for Germany. This year marks the guide's 50th year of awarding stars to restaurants in Germany. The booklet introduces one new three-starred establishment, The Table by Kevin Fehling in Hamburg.
As Elizabeth Auerbach notes, Amador in Mannheim and La Belle Epoque in Lübeck (both of which received three stars in the previous guide) are not included in the new guide because they closed this past year. Kevin Fehling was previously the chef of La Belle Epoque. Germany is now down to 10 total three Michelin-starred establishments from its height of 11, but it remains the country with the second highest number of three Michelin starred restaurants after France.
There are four new two Michelin-starred restaurants in Germany: Horváth (Berlin); Restaurant Lafleur (Frankfurt); Atelier (Munich); and Schanz Restaurant (Piesport). One restaurant, Le Noir Gourmet in Saarbrücken, was demoted down to just one star. The total number of two-starred restaurants in Germany is 39.
The total number of one-starred restaurants is 241: 26 restaurants were awarded their first ever Michelin star in this guide. 15 restaurants lost their single star.
Here is the full list of newly starred restaurants in Germany as well as the current ranking among restaurants with one, two, and three stars:
