The Michelin Guide France 2021

This week, the dining guide arm of tire company Michelin returned to its home country, bestowing stars on 638 restaurants in France, including 57 new starred restaurants.

The list, which Michelin calls a reflection of its “loyal[ty] to gourmet diners and restaurants” despite the unprecedented challenges of the pandemic, includes one new three-star restaurant. Michelin’s highest honor now goes to AM par Alexandre Mazzia in Marseille, which serves multi-course menus with cross-cultural influences. There are two new two-star restaurants on the list — chef Hélène Darroze’s Marsan in Paris and Alsatian restaurant La Merise, run by Cédric Deckert — but it’s the one-star category that offers the most variety. A total of 54 new restaurants, hailing from various parts of the country, make the list in 2021, including 12 from the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region in the southwest of France, the most of any region.
