Does anyone know which Paris restaurants got new stars? Couldn’t find it easily when googling.
Did find this, but not crystal clear.
Or maybe it is (bold and line breaks inserted by me):
Anona (Paris 17th arrondissement), run by Thibaut Spiwack; Villa9Trois (Montreuil), overseen by the Breton Camille Saint-M’Leux;
and the eponymous restaurant of Malory Gabsi (Paris 17th arrondissement). Omar Dhiab (Paris 1st arrondissement)
and Terumitsu Saito, of the restaurant Ōrtensia (Paris 16th arrondissement), add a touch of exoticism - respectively Egyptian and Japanese - to the gastronomic landscape of Paris.
In the 8th arrondissement, Martino Ruggeri demonstrates noteworthy cookery at his Maison Ruggieri…
while Pascal Barbot receives his first MICHELIN Star directly upon the reopening of his restaurant Astrance in the 16th arrondissement.
I think especially well deserved for Omar Dhiab and, above all, Mallory Gabsi. But bittersweet. Mallory Gabsi, near my office and a great value for the quality until now, will probably jack its prices up by 50%. Boohoo.
Those days are gone. Since a few years, the team headed by Gwendal Poullennec has downgraded a few places include the mythical restaurant of Paul Bocuse (they waited after his death though) and that of Marc Veyrat.
Actually Marx is bluffing. Nobody knows the rules, and that’s not news. All we can be aware of is that they have been shifting constantly, and what is most apparent is that they’re decided on a case-by-case basis. For instance it makes no sense to make Savoy go down by one star, no sense at all — until you start thinking that the decision may be aimed more to La Liste than to Savoy itself, and then a light bulb appears. Michelin is about group politics above all, and whatever seems to make sense year after year — for there’s some of that, too — insures that the remaining opacity goes on unquestioned. That’s how it’s been going on for years, and he knows that. If he had lost (deservedly IMO) a star or both, he would have had an entirely different discourse.
(The “critique d’une violence absolue” he refers to is very probably Durand-Souffland’s recent article in Le Figaro. Well, as a matter of fact, that article was rather kind, not of an absolute violence. I would have been less kind, but the last time I was at Sur Mesure was a long time ago and all I wanted to do was forget about it. Durand-Souffland’s piece seems to indicate that the place hasn’t changed much.)
