A new year, a new chapter, is how the people behind the famous red book announced its Michelin Guide to Great Britain and Ireland 2021. The launch event will be held at The Dorchester Hotel in London, and will highlight the resilience, quality and potential of the industry across the islands.
Despite the turmoil in the restaurant industry, Michelin inspectors have been secretly assessing restaurants across the UK and Ireland in order to compile the 2021 guide, which will be published digitally only.
Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of the Michelin Guides, said: “Our inspectors are eating out and supporting the industry across Great Britain and Ireland. Moving the event to January and launching a digital-only guide gives us the time we need to be fair to restaurateurs and to ensure the consistent, expert advice our customers demand.
“Restaurants have been through challenges we previously couldn’t even have imagined – and I want to applaud chefs and owners for the passion, ingenuity and entrepreneurship they have shown this year" - Gwendal Poullennec
January 2021 is obviously quite some time away and nobody knows what will transpire in the meantime regarding the coronavirus and the restrictive measures surrounding it. With that in mind, access to the Michelin Star Revelation event – both physical and digital – will be under constant review, with no further details available until closer to the event.
