Michelin star awards for 2023

Michelin star awards for 2023

Every year the fantastic Michelin guide awards some of the worlds best and unique restaurants a Michelin star. Each year the awards are given by country. The new Restaurants for the UK & Ireland guide has now been released. Let’s take a look at what restaurants worked their way to the top!

What are Michelin stars?

The Michelin star is a type of award that is much desired within the hospitality and catering sector. Allowing a business to gain a ‘must-see’ status endorsed by Michelin. They are a tyre manufacturing company by trade and in their commitment to providing service for those on the road, they established the Michelin guide and stars, to allow drivers to know what restaurants are worth visiting while they’re on the road. In their commitment to provide quality content for drivers and foodies alike, they utilise various awards to indicate the quality of food, such as the Green Star for sustainability and the Bib Gourmand, issued to restaurants committed to affordability and quality.

The Michelin stars are issued yearly, with a ceremony at the end of the year to issue prestigious awards to those who have proven themselves truly exceptional.
