The Michelin Guide for the Main Cities in Eurpope 2013 has been released. Including 44 cities in over 20 countries the guide is intended to offer advice on some of the best restaurants across Europe.
This year's Michelin Cities guide features a selection of 2,154 restaurants and 1,574 hotels. There were unfortunately no new three star restaurants on the list but the guide did feature nine new two-star restaurants and 50 new one-star venues.
There's still no third star forRene Redzepi'sNoma in Copenhagen. Many expected the restaurant to receive a third back in 2012 but it seems Michelin is content with the restaurants two-star rating.
The new guide features 15 restaurants (no new entries) with a three star rating, 80 restaurants (nine new entries) with a two-star rating and a whopping 309 restaurants (50 new entries) with a one-star rating.
Three stars signifies exceptional cuisine that's worth a special journey, two stars excellent cooking that's worth a detour, one star suggests a very good restaurant in its category. The Michelin 2013 Main Cities Guide is released on the 14th March including the Nordic region, Austria, Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Poland, Paris and other main cities of europe.
