The 2023 Michelin Guide to France has been revealed – and Michelin says the latest edition of the world-famous gourmet bible “celebrates a French gastronomy brimful of vitality, many young talents and committed, sustainable kitchens, rooted in their regions”.
Four new restaurants join the ranks of those with two stars and 39 new establishments receive one star. Eight new addresses are rewarded with a green star for their commitment to sustainable gastronomy. Meanwhile, La Marine, on the island of Noirmoutier, joins the hallowed ranks of three-star restaurants.
The awards were revealed at an exceptional ceremony at the Strasbourg Music and Congress Centre in Alsace on Monday, March 6. It was attended by restaurant owners and professionals from more than 500 Michelin-Star Restaurants in France and Europe.

They are borne up by talents – often young talents – who take initiatives and reveal their potential, and each restaurant fully reflects the terroir in which it is established. The chefs at their helm provide distinctive culinary experiences and foster economic, human and cultural connections.”
