Monday saw the highly-anticipated release of the annual Michelin Guide to the top tables in France. There was only one new Michelin three-star winner (La Vague d’Or in Saint Tropez had that honors), leading France 24 News to declare that the venerable guide was quite “stingy with their stars” this year.
Five new restaurants picked up two stars, and 39 new restaurants snagged one star, including both La Cuisine and Il Carpaccio at Le Royal Monceau Raffles Hotel, and 114 Faubourg at Le Bristol in Paris. For the full list of 2013 Michelin-starred restaurants in France, see this article in Le Figaroscope.
