Genuine tradition in the world of French gastronomy, The Michelin Guide France, out from January 25, 2019, released its results 2019 this Monday January 21 for a press conference held at Paris Salle Gaveau. The guide includes this year 75 new starred restaurants including 68 new 1-star restaurants, instead of 57 last year.
In Paris and Ile de France then, the Guide Michelin 2019 decided to award 20 Ile de France restaurants with one star (18 in Paris, 1 in Vincennes and 1 in Cergy-Pontoise):
This year, in terms of beautiful awards, we congratulate Stéphanie Le Quellec, gourmet restaurant La Scène chef at Prince de Galles in Paris who gets a second star. David Toutain also gets a second star for his restaurant set in Paris 7th restaurant.
Finally, two chefs are awarded a third star: Laurent Petit from Clos des Sens (Annecy) and Mauro Colagreco from Mirazur (Menton).
But, it's a cold shower for some top chefs. Marc Veyrat from La Maison des Bois (Savoie), Pascal Barbot from L'Astrance (Paris 16th) and Marc Haerbelin from l'Auberge de l'Ill loose their third star. Six other restaurants go from two to one star: Alain Dutournier from Carré des Feuillants (Paris 1st), David Bizet from Taillevent (Paris 8th), Alain Montigny from L'Oasis (Mandelieu-la-Napoule), Nicolas Decherchi from La Paloma (Mouguins), Thierry Drapeau from La Chabotterie (Saint-Sulpice-sur-Verdon) and Guy Lassausaie (Chasselay).
Let’s recall that several criteria are taken into account by the jury members: the quality of the products; a chef’s mastery of flavour and cooking techniques; the chef’s ability to imbue the cuisine with his or her culinary “personality;” and consistency between visits.
