Michelin guide Great Britain & Ireland 2014

Early this morning, Michelin announced the Michelin stars and Bib Gourmands 2014 for Great Britain & Ireland. In the 2014 edition Michelin has awarded two London restaurants a second star. The first one being Heston Blumenthal's Dinner at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Knightsbridge, led by chef Ashley Palmer-Watts. Michelin on Dinner: "a glorious celebration of Britain's culinary heritage". The second restaurant is The Greenhouse in Mayfair. Michelin praises head chef Arnaud Bignon for his technically impressive and innovative cooking.

L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon was demoted to one star, which takes the number of two-star restaurants in the 2014 guide to 21; 19 in England (of which 9 are in London), and 1 in Ireland and Scotland each.

All 4 three-star restaurants in England held on to Michelin's highest accolade. Engeland's three-star restaurants are: Gordon Ramsay Royal Hospital Road (chef-patron: Clare Smyth), Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester (chef: Jocelyn Herland), The Fat Duck (chef: Jonny Lake) and The Waterside Inn (chef: Alain Roux).

In the one-star category Michelin has once again found a not insubstantial number of restaurants worthy of this accolade. No fewer than 15 restaurants have been awarded a Michelin star; 13 in England (of which 9 in London) and 2 in Ireland.
The winners in London are: Nathan Outlaw's restaurant 'Outlaw's at the Capital Hotel', Eric Chavot's Brasserie Chavot at the Westbury Hotel, HKK (Chinese cuisine, part of the Hakkasan Group), Ametsa with Arzak instruction at the Halkin Hotel, Alvin Leung's Bo London, Jason Atherton's Social Eating House (opened in March 2013), Angler at the South Place Hotel, Virgilio Martinez's Lima and Tom Seller's Restaurant Story (opened in April 2013). The 2014 guide features 142 one-star restaurants in total.

In the press release editor Rebecca Burr praises the London dining scene:
“The Michelin guide has always reflected what’s out there and London in particular has never offered so much choice – there really is something for everyone and for every occasion and there appears to be no end to the number of exciting new restaurant openings. With cuisines and culinary influences from all parts of the globe, it’s no surprise that the capital is one of the most exciting cities in the world for food"

Also announced today were the Bib Gourmand results. The 2014 guide features 143 restaurants (27 new entries) in the Bib Gourmand category (affordable and enjoyable meal for £28 or less, €40 in Ireland). Among the new entries are Galvin Brasserie de Luxe in Edinburgh and Polpo Smithfield and Grain Store in London.
