This announcement has been something many Canadians (and especially Vancouverites have been waiting for)!
Michelin and Destination Vancouver today announced the MICHELIN® Guide Vancouver, the latest expansion of the MICHELIN Guide.
Vancouver is home to a thriving culinary community, with both established chefs and young professionals ready to polish their skills. The city’s restaurant teams are committed to using a wide range of high-quality products, such as produce, meat and seafood sourced locally and sustainably.
The first MICHELIN Guide Vancouver selection will be revealed in the fall, and it will showcase outstanding restaurants and professionals receiving Michelin distinctions. The famously anonymous inspectors of the Guide award the iconic MICHELIN Stars – One, Two or Three – to unparalleled cuisine. The Guide is also renowned for its Bib Gourmand selection, highlighting restaurants that offer great quality food at good prices. The MICHELIN Green Star is given to restaurants that are leaders in sustainable gastronomy.
I for one am SOOO excited for restaurants in the Vancouver scene to start getting their place among the stars. It’s no question we have some spectacular restaurants here on the west coast, and it’s about time some of them get the global recognition they deserve.
Apparently, Michelin inspectors are already in the field making their rounds. They make dining reservations anonymously and pay for all their meals to ensure they are treated the same as any other customer.
