it's out!

the michelin red guide for tokyo's out! now tokyo has became the most star-studded city with all the restaurants reviewed given at least one star. all together 8 restaurants were awarded three stars (more than new york), 25 with two, and 117 with one.

with the new releases of tokyo, las vegas and los angeles guides in november, joel robuchon overtook alain ducasse and gordon ramsay as the chef with most michelin stars. he won 10 in this week alone (2 3-stars for joel robuchon in vegas and tokyo, 2 2-stars for l'atelier in vegas and tokyo, plus one star for tokyo's l'table). ramsay's tokyo outpost at conrad failed to get a star this time, and alain ducasse's new york restaurant was dropped from the guide this year because of its relocation.

personally, i added 4 stars to my restaurant list - spago(2) and matsuhisa(1) in los angeles and nobu(1) in las vegas. michelin also confirmed that there will be an additional guide for an asian city next year - could that be hong kong? we probably will find out in around spring time.

oh full list for tokyo can be found here, if you are interested.
