Michelin Guide to be updated monthly


In a historic move, The Michelin Guide will now be updated on the last Wednesday of every month. The fine-dining guide has ben produced since 1904 and has traditionally held yearly ceremonies to announce which establishments it regards as serving ‘high-quality cooking, worth a stop.’

Featured eateries will not be given stars immediately but those added to the guide will be the likely contenders to be listed in the yearly ceremony that takes place in October.

The first restaurants to be added as part of the monthly updates are Sumi in Notting Hill by Endo Kazutoshi; Eleven in Ponteland, Northumberland; The Loch & The Tyne in Old Windsor, Berkshire, by Adam Handling; Big Jo in London by Jeremie Cometto and David Gingell; Native at Browns, Mayfair, London, by Ivan Tisdall-Downes; Los Moros in York; and The Shed by James Sommerin in Barry, Wales.

The restaurant entries will be highlighted by a ‘new’ symbol, for easy identification, and the restaurants will also be presented in more depth through monthly articles.

Michelin Guides international director Gwendal Poullennec said, “In a period that is still very complicated and in which the restaurant industry continues to face unprecedented challenges and uncertainties, we hope these regular revelations and updates will provide opportunities to highlight the profession, and we invite everyone to discover and support the restaurants around them.”

It released its first digital-only guide this year, and  in January, it also released ‘green stars’ for restaurants showing outstanding commitment to sustainability.
