Michelin Guide to Brazil 2018 – the Full List

The Michelin Guide to Brazil, which focuses on the cities of Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, has just been released for 2018, with the big news being that there are two new, two star restaurants

Since the Guide was first introduced four years ago, chef Alex Atala's D.O.M. in São Paulo has been the only two star spot in the region, but now chef Ivan Ralston's Tuju, also in the city, and Felipe Bronze's Oro in Rio join the club. Michelin awards two stars to restaurants that offer "Excellent cooking that is worth a detour."

Ralston, like Atala, has a strong focus on indigenous products, while over at Oro, which reopened last year and quickly regained a star, as well as being named as the One to Watch at Latin America's 50 Best Restaurants 2017, Bronze has turned his attention to cooking with fire, with spectacular results.

Two restaurants also gain their first star in this Guide – Kaiseki spot Ryo Gastronomia and Tangará Jean-Georges from Jean Georges Vongerichten (Japanese cuisine and French technique remain popular with the Michelin inspectors) – while there were also 33 Bib Gourmand recommendations, awarded for "Quality cooking at moderate prices."  

However, the wait continues for a three Michelin star restaurant in the Guide, the only one to focus on a South American country, meaning Brazil now has a total of 18 starred restaurants (14 in São Paulo and 4 in Rio), one down on last year.
