Michelin guide Switzerland 2016

Today Michelin announced the Michelin stars 2016 for Switzerland. The 2016 guide will go on sale tomorrow.

In the 2016 guide Michelin has awarded Cheval Blanc in Basel a third Michelin star. Restaurant Cheval Blanc is housed in the Grand Hotel Les Trois Rois in Basel, located on the banks of the river Rhine. Executive chef at Cheval Blanc is Peter Knogl (b. 1968), who's held this position since 2007. Michelin's Michael Ellis on Peter Knogl's cooking (translated): "classically based cooking with sophisticated ideas, that is expressive and full of aroma and flavours, which makes for a unique experience".

Switzerland now has 3 three--star restaurants, the other 2 being Schloss Schauenstein in Fürstenau (chef: Andreas Caminada) and Restaurant de l'Hôtel de Ville in Crissier (chef: Benoît Violier). 

There are no changes in the two-star category; the 2016 guide will feature 18 two-star restaurants.

In the one-star category Michelin has found no fewer than 13 restaurants worthy of this accolade. Among the new laureates are Italian restaurant La Bottega in Geneva, Eligo in Lausanne (chef: Guillaume Raineix, formerly of Maison Pic in Valence and Anne-Sophie Pic in Lausanne), and Japanese restaurant Yu Nijyo at the Kameha Grand Hotel in Zürich. In the 2016 guide Indian restaurant Rasoi by Vineet in Geneva and 13 other restaurants lost their star, taking the number of one-star restaurants in Switzerland down to 95 (96 in 2015). A full list of stars can be found here.

Also announced today were the Bib Gourmand results. The 2016 guide features 119 restaurants (18 new entries) in the Bib Gourmand category (3-course meal for 65 Swiss francs). A full list of Switzerland's Bib Gourmand restaurants can be found here.

The next Michelin guides to be published are the 2016 guide for Tokyo, scheduled to be released on October the 20th, and San Francisco, scheduled for October the 21st.
