Mon 25th Jan 2021 - Michelin awards new stars for 2021
Michelin awards new stars for 2021: There have been 22 new stars awarded in the 2021 Michelin Guide. Inspectors awarded two new three-Michelin star, three new two-Michelin stars and 17 new one-Michelin stars. This year’s stars were revealed live via a virtual online ceremony broadcast on YouTube and the guide is also a digital-only publication for the first time in its history. Hélène Darroze At The Connaught in Mayfair was awarded a third star. The judges said: “Following a two-month closure at the end of 2019, Hélène Darroze at The Connaught reopened with a more contemporary look, while also cleverly managing to retain its traditional elegance. The cooking, too, has moved on a level, with head chef Marco Zampese overseeing a passionate, highly skilled kitchen team.” Core by Clare Smyth in North Kensington, London, also received a third star. The judges said: “From the moment you arrive, Clare’s superb service team put you at ease with their warm welcome and natural pride – and they work seamlessly together to provide some of the smoothest, most attentive service around. The delivery from tray-to-table is particularly charming, and a relaxed, contented hum fills the room.” Three restaurants – all in the capital – were awarded two stars. A Wong in Victoria (Andrew Wong), Da Terras in Bethnal Green (Rafael Cagali and Paulo Airaudo) and Story in Bermondsey (Tom Sellers) received the accolade. There were seven new one-star restaurants in London – Muse in Belgravia (Tom Aikens), Behind in London Fields (Andy Benyon), Cornerstone in Hackney (Tom Brown), Davies and Brook in Mayfair (Daniel Humm), Benares in Mayfair (Sameer Taneja), Casa Fofo in Dalston (Adolfo De Cecco) and Sola in Soho (Victor Garvey).
