The Michelin Guide – The 2019 Edition

The new editions of The Michelin Guide are starting to pop up, but it seems that Romania is still far from getting its own edition. At the moment, the closest Michelin starred restauants are in Hungary or Poland, and even these two don’t host an establishment awarded with the maximum of three stars – in Hungary there are a couple of places ranked with two Michelin stars, while Poland only has one-star restaurants. This is how things are these days, so the closest three-stars Michelin restaurants to Romania are in Italy (Le Calandre or St. Hubertus).

But what’s a quick flight these days from Bucharest (or other major city in Romania) to a European country that’s richer in Michelin stars? For instance, Great Britain. And we thought of The United Kingdom since the 2019 edition of the guide has just been released. The top of the hierarchy is the same as last year: The Araki, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay și Alain Ducasse at the Dorchester (in London), and The Fat Duck and Waterside Inn (both in Bray). And don’t you dare think it’s easy to maintain that ranking once you’ve achieved it – the level must be kept at all times, since there is no guarantee that once you’ve entered the guide you’ll stay there, let alone with the same number of stars.

But it is fact that it’s a huge success to reach among the Michelin stars and in The UK there have been 21 restaurants who managed to get their debut star. And if the debut starts off straight from a two-stars ranking, well, that is more than impressive. And this is precisely what Clare Smyth managed to achieve. She was granted the „Best Female Chef” award, she was shaped under the tutelage of Gordon Ramsay and she was the one who attended to the menu of the royal wedding reception of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. We’ll definitely hear about Core by Clare Smyth plenty more in the future.
