Mon 2nd Oct 2017 - Michelin reveals new stars for 2018 including new three-star restaurant
Michelin reveals new stars for 2018 including new three-star restaurant: There was one new three Michelin-starred, one new two Michelin-starred and 16 new one Michelin-starred restaurants in the 2018 Michelin Guide. This year’s stars were revealed live at The Brewery, near the Barbican, in east London. The new three-star restaurant is The Araki in Mayfair. Chef and owner Mitsuhiro Araki opened the venue in New Burlington Street in 2014 having closed his restaurant in Tokyo. The Araki has just ten seats at a counter and runs one set menu. Michelin judges described the sushi restaurant as “sublime” and it is the first Japanese restaurant in the UK to be awarded three stars. Choking back tears, Araki said: “I’m so happy. I have a responsibility to my customers to do my best.” Meanwhile, Claude Bosi at Bibendum in Chelsea received two stars. Judges described the cooking as “sophisticated and bold”. Bosi said: “This is absolutely fantastic. My team is unbelievable.” There were six new one-star restaurants in London, including La Dame de Pic by Anne-Marie Pic and Nordic-inspired venue Aquavit. The other new entrants were A Wong in Victoria, Jamavar in Mayfair, Vineet Bhatia London in Chelsea and Elystan Street in Chelsea. Meanwhile, there were ten one-star restaurants outside the capital, which featured Michael Caines’ Lympstone Manor in Devon and the Wild Honey Inn in Lisdoonvarna, which was the first pub in Ireland to receive the accolade. The other new one-star venues were The Latymer in Bagshot, Surrey; Coworth Park, Ascot, Surrey; The Clock House, Ripley, Surrey; The Dining Room at Whatley Manor, Malmesbury, Wiltshire; Moor Hall, Aughton, Lancashire; The Coach, Marlow, Buckinghamshire; Paco Tapas, Bristol; and Loch Bay, Isle of Skye. Michael Ellis, international director of the Michelin Guides, said: “These stars are testament to the work of so many skilled chefs using superb ingredients, showing inspiration and motivating great teams. Michelin stars recognise culinary excellence around the globe and are a sign of the quality dishes that are being produced.”
