MICHELIN Guide Germany 2016

Michelin has released its fiftieth edition of the Germany MICHELIN Guide listing 3,359 hotels and 2,303 restaurants.

In this edition, the restaurant The Table Kevin Fehling, which has just opened in HafenCity, Hamburg, was awarded three stars by MICHELIN guide inspectors. This is the new restaurant of 38 year old chef Kevin FEHLING who had already been awarded three stars in 2013 for his previous restaurant, Belle Epoque, which he closed a few months ago. "Kevin FEHLING masters his art today!" commented Michael ELLIS, International Director of MICHELIN Guides. "In his new, impressively decorated establishment, Kevin FEHLING transports us to a world where every dish is a moment of excitement. His cuisine demonstrates his total mastery of technique and exceptional maturity which is the prerogative of all top chefs".

In all, there is a record 290 starred restaurants in the 2016 Germany MICHELIN Guide, which is approximately 30% more than in the 2010 Guide, demonstrating the rapid growth of haute cuisine in Germany. "German cuisine is distinguished by its unprecedented dynamism and is now among the best in the world" continued Michael ELLIS. "In particular, a generation of young, highly motivated and innovative chefs with sound training are bringing a breath of fresh air to the profession. Effectively, among the 26 new restaurants that were awarded a star this year, many belong to a chef under the age of 30".

39 addresses were awarded two stars in the 2016 Germany MICHELIN Guide, which is double the number in the 2010 Guide.
