Michelin awards more stars in Europe

Tomorrow, the new Michelin guide “Main Cities of Europe 2010” will come out. Michelin’s new guide covers all the restaurants in scope in Europe for 2010.

The stars of Michelin mean the following:
*** “Exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey”
**  “Excellent cooking, worth a detour”
*   “Very good cooking in its category”

Michelin awards a second star to a Stockholm restaurant and recognizes five Budapest restaurants in their guide. Another restaurant, Noma, in Copenhagen, doesn’t get a third star despite the fact that the owner thinks he deserved it.

Further, in Budapest, Costeds gains one star and there are “Bib Gourmand” awards for 21, Arcade Bistro, Bock Bisztro and Csalogany. New one star restaurants are Carpe Diem, in Salzburg, Austria; Novelli, in Vienna; and AOC, Copenhagen. Also in Copenhagen, there’s a “Bib Gourmand” for Kodbyens Fiskebar.

Hopefully I will be able to travel the continent soon, to visit some of these restaurants. But I also think that you can have great dinners at non-star restaurants.
