The first edition of the MICHELIN Guide to Miami, Orlando and Tampa, first announced in November 2021 as a partnership between the respected restaurant rating company and VISIT FLORIDA, the state’s tourism arm, is out.
The guide’s inspectors found a total of 15 restaurants that had earned the coveted MICHELIN stars – 14 with one star and one with two stars.
“As you can see, Miami, Orlando and Tampa have a lot to offer international foodies and wine lovers,” said Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of the MICHELIN Guide, in a statement. “These talented chefs and their dedicated teams create culinary experiences surpassed only by each city’s amazing attractions. Highlighting glittering Miami, fabled Orlando and stunning Tampa, this MICHELIN Guide’s first-ever Florida selection offers a unique blend of international cuisine and Florida flavors. Local foodies and travelers alike will enjoy exploring these fascinating and rich Florida culinary destinations.”
French restaurant L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon in Miami was awarded two MICHELIN stars, with inspectors saying: “The menu offers both tasting portions and large plates; but go with the seasonal fixed price. The breadbasket is a lovely opener that arrives before such exciting bites as a seared scallop with toasted spices. With its counter and open kitchen, the ambience of the Design District bears all the popular trademarks.”
