Michelin confirmed today that the announcement will be made at the BFI IMAX cinema in London, as part of a “multi-sensory experience” exploring the theme of “gastronomy and cinema”.
“The selection is set to be very strong this year – a real endorsement of the ever-evolving culinary scene of Great Britain and Ireland," says Rebecca Burr, director of the Michelin Guide Great Britain and Ireland.
“We are very much looking forward to celebrating that in October.”
Last year saw 17 new one-star restaurants added to the Guide, ranging from formal venues such as Michael Caines’ Lympstone Manor in Devon to more casual Paco Tapas in Bristol.
London's Claude Bosi at Bibendum was the only new two-star entry, while nine-seat sushi bar The Araki in Mayfair was the first new three-star restaurant to be announced in the UK in seven years.
This year’s announcement will be the first following the departure of Michelin’s international director Michael Ellis, who will step down in September to join Dubai’s luxury Jumeirah hotel group.
