September 22 marks the official publication date for the MICHELIN Guide Guangzhou 2020. 89 restaurants have been selected in the 2020 edition of the Guide, including two Two Star restaurants, 10 One Star restaurants, 31 Bib Gourmand restaurants and 46 Michelin Plate restaurants. One restaurant received a second Star, one was awarded its first Star, and five new establishments joined the Bib Gourmand rankings: proof that the culinary identity of the city of Guangzhou, despite the tough months it has had to face, is as dynamic as ever.
This is the third edition of the MICHELIN Guide Guangzhou. Despite the exceptional year we have been through, our inspectors continued to scout the city, being both touched and impressed by the resilience of so many chefs and their entrepreneurship in overcoming the crisis and helping to shape a safe and lasting recovery. This new edition is the perfect opportunity to highlight their efforts, to continue to support local industry, and, of course, to keep the spotlight firmly shining on Guangzhou as one of the best gourmet destinations in the world. With one new Two Star, one new One Star and five new Bib Gourmand restaurants in this year’s selection alongside restaurants that have consistently earned a distinction, the MICHELIN Guide Guangzhou 2020 also recognizes the strength and effervescence of the local gastronomic scene.
