After a turbulent 18 months the Michelin Guide continues to review its process to reflect a changing restaurant landscape
In 2021, the Michelin Guide Great Britain & Ireland was published in digital only format for the first time, in an effort to be more agile and reflect the country’s ever-evolving restaurant scene.
Now, the team behind the guide has announced a new approach to reveal additions to the restaurant guide in the run-up to the official unveiling of the 2022 guide at the annual launch event when the Michelin stars, Bib Gourmands and Green Stars for 2022 will be announced.
“By revealing some of the new additions made by our inspectors throughout the year, we further strengthen the ties that bind us to food lovers”, said Gwendal Poullennec, international director of the Michelin Guides.
The new additions to the guide will be published on the last Wednesday of every month – the first release took place in August 2021. The restaurant entries will be highlighted by a ‘New’ symbol, for easy identification, and the restaurants will also be presented in more depth in monthly articles.
“In a period that is still very complicated and in which the restaurant industry continues to face unprecedented challenges and uncertainties, we hope that these regular revelations and updates will provide opportunities to highlight the profession, and we invite everyone to discover and support the restaurants around them,” adds Poullennec.
Some of these new additions may move on to receive Michelin Stars, Bib Gourmands or Green Stars at the annual launch ceremony.
