Miami Restaurants Named To First-Ever Florida Michelin Guide

MIAMI, FL -​ On Thursday, June 9th, the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau (GMCVB) celebrated the release of the first-ever Michelin Guide Miami, Orlando and Tampa during a live ceremony at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando where Greater Miami and Miami Beach were awarded 11 of the 15 new Michelin Stars, including the only Two-Michelin-Star restaurant, L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon Miami. 

Twenty-nine restaurants in the three cities were honored with the Bib Gourmand designation, and Miami had the only restaurants who received special awards in the Sommelier of the Year and Exceptional Cocktails categories. 

In total, 65 restaurants in Greater Miami and Miami Beach were recognized, representing more than half of all the restaurants in the new Florida Michelin guide.

“We’re delighted to partner with VISIT Florida and our colleagues in Orlando and Tampa to introduce Florida’s first-ever Michelin Guide. This prestigious honor serves to solidify Miami and Miami Beach as one of the most sought-after business and leisure travel destinations in the world.”​​

“Despite the challenges of the last couple of years, the growth our local culinary industry can be credited to our community’s resilience,” noted Whitaker.
