What’s new in the 2011 guide

97 Bib Gourmand restaurants=, of which 20 newly awarded the label
In all, 97 restaurants in the new edition display the Bib Gourmand label. Because of the
recession, these restaurants have become increasingly important to readers in recent years
and are much sought after. Michelin has aligned itself with this trend, listing 97 restaurants in
the category in the 2011 guide, compared with 93 in 2010 and 87 in 2009. The Bib
Gourmand label denotes excellent value for money. The inspectors’ favorites, these
restaurants show that it’s possible to eat well at an affordable price. They offer a delicious
three-course meal for less than €35, thanks to their chefs, who are committed to doing things
right and making good food affordable to everyone.

98 “starred” restaurants *, of which 9 new additions
The number of “starred” restaurants has increased to 98 this year, compared with 91 in the
2010 guide.= While inclusion in the MICHELIN guide is already a sign of quality, some
restaurants deserve special attention because of their truly outstanding cuisine, which is
indicated with stars. A restaurant that has been awarded one or more stars is not only among
the best in its city or country but also in the world.
The guide also features a broad selection of 566 hotels, covering all comfort and price
categories from guesthouses to luxury hotels.

This wide array reaffirms the MICHELIN guide’s values, which explain its longevity and its
popularity throughout the 20th century. Since 1905, it has developed a reputation as the
benchmark guide for finding just the right restaurant or hotel.
In 2011, the MICHELIN guide – which in fact is a collection – comprises 26 guides covering
23 countries. Featuring everything from cozy little eateries serving delicious food to threestar
restaurants and from small, family-run inns to luxury hotels, it has become the standard
by which hotels and restaurants in a given city or country are judged.
The guide offers a reliable selection that is updated every year by anonymous,
professional inspectors, all of whom are MICHELIN employees and pay all their hotel and
restaurant bills. Its consistent, meticulous selection process is unique and applied in all
countries covered by the MICHELIN guide. Restaurants anywhere around the world that are
being considered for stars are judged on the same five criteria: product quality, preparation
and flavors, the chef’s personality as revealed through his or her cuisine, value for money,
and consistency over time and across the entire menu. These criteria are adapted to each
type of cuisine.

Fully aligned with readers’ needs and desires, the MICHELIN guide truly is for everyone.
Whether looking for a romantic setting, a friendly place to dine with friends or a small
restaurant near the office for lunch with a colleague between two meetings, readers are
always sure to find what they want in the MICHELIN guide.
