This year's Michelin Guide for the UK was just released, or really leaked, highlighting four new 2-star restaurants, twenty-six new 1-star restaurants, and a list of four 'Rising Stars'. The coveted 3-stars were only bestowed upon past recipients including Gordon Ramsay, Heston Blumenthal's 'The Fat Duck', and Michel Roux's 'The Waterside Inn'.
Two-Michelin Stars were newly awarded to:
- The Dining Room at Whatley Manor
- Alain Ducasse at the Dorchester
- l'Atelier de Joel Robuchon
- Claude Bosi's Hibiscus (previously lost a star when the restaurant moved from Ludlow to London)
