Michelin Guide France 2011
The Michelin Guide has just announced its annual star shower, with the following changes for Paris restos:
- New 3* designations: none. This is the first year since 1992 without any new three-star restaurants. Le Cinq was rumored to be a contender, but will remain a 2* for at least one more year.
- New 2* designations: Passage 53, L’Atelier Etoile de Joël Robuchon, and Jean-François Piège.
- New 1* designations: Frédéric Simonin, Les Ambassadeurs, Le Baudelaire, Sensing, Antoine, and Le Fourchette de Printemps.
- Deletions: La Table de Joël Robuchon (now closed) and Montparnasse 25.
