These Are Britain And Ireland’s Michelin Star Restaurants: Find The Full List For 2023 Here

If there’s any badge of honour to flaunt in the culinary world, it’s the Michelin Star. An unmatched prestige and honour, restaurants across the world are constantly accelerating their game to earn that one star to make it big! Michelin Guide announced the Michelin Star restaurants 2023 in Britain and Ireland and you might want to take a look at them.

On March 27, 2023, the Michelin Guide in Great Britain and Ireland announced restaurants across the countries which earned their first Michelin Star, and which ones got to keep or lose theirs respectively. Going by the list, we can see that in 2023, the number of restaurants having three stars in Great Britain and Ireland stayed at just eight, out of which five are located in London. This means that the list added no new restaurants to its three-star ranks. The good news is that 20 new restaurants received their first star, and three restaurants received a second star. Interested to know what the list looks like? Let’s find out.

What is a Michelin Star?

The biggest honour in the world of food, a Michelin Star is awarded to restaurants that offer outstanding cooking. According to the Michelin Guide, there are five criteria that are taken into account while awarding a star to a restaurant. Those are: the quality of the ingredients, the harmony of flavours, the mastery of techniques, the personality of the chef as expressed through their cuisine and, just as importantly, consistency both across the entire menu and over time.

The star is awarded only on the basis of what is served on the plate, nothing else. This makes sure that the food remains the true hero of any restaurant.
