The results are in, and this year 52 restaurants join the hallowed ranks of Michelin one-starred eateries in France. 

And the standout names for 2024 with the maximum three-star rating are Le Gabriel – La Réserve Paris, run by Jérôme Banctel, and La Table du Castellet. The latter is run by 35-year-old Fabien Ferré, part of an emerging trend for this year’s guide which awards a star to more than 30 restaurants run by owners under 40. 

Meanwhile, eight new restaurants receive two stars and nine receive the Green star in recognition of their eco-friendly gastronomy. 

The 2024 Guide was revealed in a ceremony held at Tours Congress Centre and in total it lists 639 starred restaurants throughout France – 30 three-star, 75 two-star and 534 one-star. 

Gwendal Poullennec, international director of the Michelin Guides, said: “The inspectors awarded a number of stars to establishments that first opened their doors in 2023. They are often run by young entrepreneurs. This was not an intentional decision by the Michelin Guide in order to highlight the emerging generation, but rather a way of paying tribute to their sheer talent, executed alongside mixed teams of passionate individuals, who are ambassadors of their regions and of the farming communities whose produce they exalt. The young age of the chefs in the 2024 selection is embodied, at the summit of the selection, by the high-voltage Fabien Ferré at La Table du Castellet who, aged just 35 has received three Michelin stars.”
