This morning, Michelin revealed its star announcements for Great Britain and Ireland. Over on Eater London, find deep analysis of the city’s awards. And here, some highlights from England’s capital and elsewhere in the UK.
- The Araki, a £300 per person sushi bar in Mayfair, was the country’s lone upgrade to three stars. Bibendum in Chelsea was the only restaurant to debut at the two-star level.
- Paco Tapas in Bristol received one star. The restaurant’s sister restaurant Casamia — which helped put Bristol on the map — already had a Michelin star; it was run by Paco’s Peter Sanchez-Iglesias and his brother Jonray, who died in 2015 at the age of 32.
- Wild Honey Inn is the first pub in Ireland to ever get a Michelin star — somewhat of a surprise, considering the pub culture in the country.
- Michael Caines, who previously earned two stars at Gidleigh Park, which he left in 2015, receives a one-star rating for Lympstone Manor.
- Tom Kerridge’s the Coach gets a star for its no-reservations pub; Kerridge’s the Hand & Flowers has two stars and was the UK’s first-ever pub to receive a Michelin rating.
