The Michelin Guide, published by the French tyre company Michelin, has been produced annually for more than a century. The oldest European hotel and restaurant reference guide awards stars for excellence to a select few establishments, and has had dramatic effects on the success of restaurants over the years. Since 1955, the guide has highlighted restaurants offering “exceptional good food at moderate prices,” a feature now called Bib Gourmand. This year’s London guide includes 8 new Michelin stars awarded to restaurants in the capital, as well as an impressive 15 new Bib Gourmand entries.
