Yesterday, the tire-and-restaurant-guide company Michelin revealed the 2018 star count for Germany. There is one new three-star this year: chef Jan Hartwig’s Atelier, an upscale restaurant in Munich’s Bayerischer Hof hotel. This brings the country’s three-star count up to 11.

This year, the Germany guide features 300 starred restaurants, up from 292 last year. Michelin added four new two-star restaurants to the list and 29 new one-star restaurants, including vegetarian restaurants Seven Swans in Frankfurt and Cookies Cream in Berlin.

As in years past, Germany’s 2018 Michelin-starred restaurants represent both major cities and small towns — while Berlin has no three-star restaurants, Baiersbronn, a town in the Black Forest, has three. This year, Andernach, a town in the Rhine Valley, has starred restaurants for the first time: Italian trattoria Ai Pero and sushi restaurant Yoso, both with one star.

Michelin’s international dining guides are consistently criticized for a lack of diversity. The organization has a reputation for favoring French and Japanese fine dining over other cuisines and for failing to honor restaurants run by women. Not one of Germany’s 11 three-starred, European fine-dining restaurants is led by a woman.
