Michelin guide Main Cities of Europe 2016

This morning Michelin announced the results of the 2016 Main Cities of Europe guide. The most noteworthy countries in this guide are Austria, Chech Republic, Greece, Hungary, and Poland, all countries without their own Michelin guide. 

In this 35th edition of the guide, Michelin has promoted three restaurants in Austria to two stars: Mraz & Sohn in Vienna, and Ikarus and Senns in Salzburg.

Restaurant Mraz & Sohn is run by father Markus Mraz (head chef) and his son Manuel (restaurant manager). Ikarus is the restaurant by Michelin-star veteran Eckart Witzigmann, located in the Hangar 7 building at Salzburg Airport, which is owned by Red Bull founder Dietrich Mateschitz. The restaurant is well-known for its guest-chef concept, with a different internationally acclaimed chef cooking at Ikarus each month. Last year's guest-chefs included Virgilio Martinez (Central, Peru), Esben Holmboe Bang (Maaemo, Oslo), Christopher Kostow (Meadowood, Napa Valley), Gert de Mangeleer (Hertog Jan, Bruges). The current guest-chef (March 2016) is Dominique Crenn of Atelier Crenn (2 Michelin stars) in San Francisco. 

Head chef of Senns in Salzburg is Andrea Senn, who previously worked at Ikarus. Senns was awarded its first Michelin star just last year. 
The 2016 guide features 88 two-star restaurants in total, with 15 new entries. The other newcomers have already been announced in previously released guides, with 2 new entries in Belgium (Antwerp and Brussels), 5 in Paris, 3 in Germany (Berlin, Frankfurt and Munich) and 2 in London

In the three-star category there are 5 new entries (also already announced in previous guides): Geranium in Copenhagen, Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée and Le Cinq in Paris, The Table by Kevin Fehling in Hamburg, and Maaemo in Oslo. Together the main cities of Europe have 19 three-star restaurants: 1 in Copenhagen, 10 in Paris, 1 in Lyon (Paul Bocuse), 1 in Hamburg, 1 in Rome, 1 in Florence, 1 in Oslo, 1 in Madrid, and 2 in London. 

Five restaurants have been awarded their first star in the 2016 guide: Le Ciel and Opus in Vienna, Field in Prague, Costes Downtown in Budapest and Senses in Warsaw. The 2016 guide will count 379 one-star restaurants in total. 

The 2016 edition also features 55 new entries in the Bib Gourmand category, but just a handful of this number have not previously been announced in other guides. There are 4 new Bib Gourmand restaurants in Vienna, 1 in Salzburg, 1 in Prague, 1 in Budapest, and 1 in Cracow.
