Out of the 44 restaurants that were chosen by Michelin last year, 38 of them still have their spots. This list now includes 59 restaurants that have been chosen by Michelin, which represents an increase of 21 restaurants.
The Gaston Acurio Service Award, which honors exemplary and friendly service, was given to Tomislav Lokvicic of La Mar.
Arturo Scamardella from Dinner by Heston Blumenthal won the sommelier award, which honors a person for imparting expertise and enhancing the dining experience.
Omkar Walve from Avatara received the young chef award, which is granted to rising cooks who are regarded as the representatives of the next generation. Inspectors praised the young person’s kind demeanor, attention to detail, and flavorful dishes.
During this edition, a fourth special award category called “New Opening of the Year” was presented for the first time. The owner of Ariana’s Persian Kitchen, Ariana Bundy, received it.
The Michelin Green star honors cooks who are passionate about sustainability and raises consumer awareness of the issue. From 2022, Lowe kept its green star. In an interview with the press, it was revealed that aside from eggshells and avocado pits, there isn’t much waste at the restaurant. Last year, it was the sole restaurant to win the honor.
