For The Michelin Guide for Main Cities of Europe 2017, a dozen restaurants were given two stars, bringing the number of restaurants with two Michelin stars in the guide to 91. The Guide features cities such as Athens, Budapest, Krakow, Prague, and Warsaw.
One of the restaurants freshly awarded two Michelin stars is Amador in Vienna. Set within an elegant, vaulted stone cellar, Amador serves up dishes such as the “Berlin, Paris, Vienna” plate, which features liver, calf shoulder and Perigord truffles from France. Rebecca Burr, Editor of Michelin Guide 2017 Main Cites of Europe, said: “The young but experienced chef [of Amador] creates sophisticated, intensely flavored, artfully presented dishes crafted from top quality ingredients.”
With regards to the rest of the Guide, 51 new restaurants have obtained one Michelin star, and no new restaurants have received three Michelin stars. The Guide continues to promote a manifold, quality selection. Michael Ellis, International Director of the Michelin Guide, said: “The MICHELIN guide Main Cities of Europe 2017 reflects the vibrancy and diversity of the culinary scene in Europe’s major cities. Europe is a veritable crossroad of cultural and economic exchanges and has seen a huge development in its gastronomic scene and in its culinary offering in recent years.”
