Four Seasons George V and More: France’s New Michelin Stars

(Le Cinq at Four Seasons Hotel George V in Paris)

It’s an exciting time for foodies in France. Last week Michelin announced the new star restaurant ratings in the soon-to-be released 2017 guide. Notable among the winners: The Four Seasons Hotel George V in Paris has become the first palace hotel in Europe to be home to three Michelin-starred restaurants. Le Cinq, helmed by Chef Christian Le Squer, has retained its three-star rating, while Le George and L'Orangerie have both been awarded their first Michelin star.

In other big news, Cheval Blanc in Courchevel was the only new restaurant to receive a three-star rating, which means that chef Yannick Alléno now has six stars (as his Paris restaurant, Pavillon Ledoyen, has kept its three-star status). New two-star restaurants include Le Pressoir d'Argent-Gordon Ramsay (Bordeaux), Kei (Paris), La Table de l’Espadon (the Ritz Paris), and Le Clarence (Paris).

To quote Eater, the Michelin 2017 guide to France is a record-setter: “The country now has 616 restaurants that hold at least one Michelin star, thanks to the 57 brand-new entries christened this year.”
