Ah, Michelin. We don’t always agree with the Gallic gastronomes (though we do love Bibendum, their tyre-tummied mascot). But my, their awards do cause a kerfuffle.
This year, there’s already an outcry about the lack of stars for the London 2020 Michelin Guide – just four new one-starrers, plus a couple of ‘upgrades’. And, as ever, there’s also a handful of restaurants that have been given the ceremonial chop.
Here’s who’s in, and who’s out:
NEW TWO STARS
La Dame de Pic at the Four Seasons Tower Hill
NEW THREE STARS
Sketch Lecture Room and Library
Bibendum giveth, and he taketh away.
