Florida’s Culinary Delights Shine with MICHELIN Recognition
It’s no secret to us that Florida has an incredible and diverse dining scene worth celebrating, but following the inaugural edition of the MICHELIN Guide Orlando, Miami and Tampa, MICHELIN Guide inspectors have given 118 Florida restaurants, representing 35 cuisines, their global stamp of approval. Besides bestowing stars on an impressive 15 restaurants, the guide also singled out 29 restaurants for Bib Gourmand honours and recommended an additional 74.
What’s a Bib Gourmand? “Bibs” are given to restaurants that offer “good quality and good value.” This means that in the U.S., diners can get two courses plus a glass of wine or dessert for less than $49 – a great recommendation for clients looking for a special treat on a budget.
For delicious bowls of “finely tuned” ramen, head to Ichicoro Ramen in Tampa (Bib Gourmand), enjoy world-class steaks, tapas-style small plates and great views of the Walt Disney World fireworks at Capa, Four Seasons Orlando (One MICHELIN Star), and for refined plates of classic French cuisine, visit L’Atelier de Joël Rubuchon, in Miami’s Design District (Two MICHELIN Stars).
Explore beyond Orlando, Miami and Tampa, and gastronomic delights continue with independent restaurants and bars serving the very best of Florida’s fresh produce, including unbeatable seafood and Florida’s famous citrus fruits.
