Michelin Guide France 2008

Featuring more than 600 new addresses, the 2008 edition of the Michelin Guide France attests to the growing stature of a new wave of young chefs who emphasise product quality while expressing their own personalities through the dishes they serve.

Another emerging trend this year is reflected in the selection of �petites maisons� � small restaurants situated off the beaten track, most often in the country. Discovered by Michelin inspectors during their travels throughout France, these restaurants often serve authentic regional cooking.

This year the Michelin Guide France 2008 includes practically the same number of restaurants with stars (529) as with the Bib Gourmand pictogram (510). Restaurants awarded the Bib Gourmand label serve good food and offer a fixed-price menu for less than 28 euros outside the Paris area and 35 euros in Paris. These are the inspectors� favourites.

In all, the Michelin Guide France 2008 features a selection of 8,655 establishments, of which more than 5,000 are hotels and guesthouses and over 3,500 restaurants, extending across all comfort and price categories.

In addition to the Michelin Guide France, the Michelin Guide Paris 2008 is also being released. Last year, the Guide introduced a new layout with two establishments per page and more detailed comments on the cuisine, ambiance and d�cor. The hotels and one, two and three-star restaurants each receive a full page, with photographs of the interior and, for the restaurants, a list of specialty dishes. The Michelin Guide Paris 2008 is priced at �9.99.
