Though there are no new three three stars this year (all existing three stars retain Michelin's highest honour), there are 23 new one star restaurants. This means Tokyo, incredibly, now has 12 three star restaurants, 56 two stars and 166 one star restaurants – a total of 234.
Tokyo's nearest city rival in the stars-stakes, Paris, has 107 starred restaurants in comparison.
Geranium's Rasmus Kofoed has decided to stop serving meat at the restaurant currently ranked number two on the World's 50 Best Restaurants list. But the Danish chef isn't yet willing to go purely plant-based.
