• AM par Alexandre Mazzia in Marseille honored with its third Star
  • Another 54 restaurants earn their first Star
  • 33 more restaurants committed to sustainable gastronomy awarded a MICHELIN Green Star

Although the restaurant industry continues to grapple with the effects of an unprecedented health crisis, Michelin remains loyal to gourmet diners and restaurants, proudly presenting the 2021 edition of the MICHELIN Guide France.

Featuring 638 starred establishments, including 57 new addresses, the 2021 Guide shows that, thanks to a wealth of both longstanding and emerging talent, the fine dining scene is still very much alive and well all over France.

For the second year, the MICHELIN Guide has awarded a MICHELIN Green Star to a selection of restaurants committed to advocating a virtuous, sustainable approach to gastronomy. The 33 restaurants singled out this year, whose efforts ring particularly true today as environmental awareness becomes more acute, continue to pave the way for a more responsible future.

As we know, 2020 was a particularly challenging and difficult year for restaurant owners. However, they welcomed diners whenever they could, and customers responded eagerly, demonstrating their deep fondness for fine cuisine. Our teams have been impressed by this show of solidarity and engagement. For us, it was important to honor our longstanding commitment to diners and chefs by publishing our 2021 selection of restaurants. Just as the past year impacted chefs, our local teams also had to adapt as they prepared the 2021 edition of the Guide. Thanks to an exceptional level of commitment from our inspectors in France and some from abroad, following our time-honored methods and carrying out as many restaurant visits as usual, the teams managed to draw up a selection of restaurants that is every bit as reliable and credible as in previous years. The 2021 edition reaffirms that fine dining continues to shine brightly throughout France, lit up by wide range of talent, both familiar faces and new arrivals. We sincerely hope that our Guide will be a useful tool for the people who place their trust in us, and that it serves as an invitation to discover or rediscover the pleasure of fine cuisine while also contributing to the recovery.
