France gets 70 new starred restaurants in Michelin Guide

PARIS — The Michelin Guide has awarded one or more of its coveted stars to 70 new restaurants in France.

The only new three-star restaurant in the guide's 2017 edition is the "1947" at the Cheval Blanc hotel in the tony Alpine ski resort of Courchevel.

Michelin praised the establishment's chef, Yannick Alleno, for providing "a memorable experience" that "will seduce the palates of the world's finest gastronomes."

Alleno previously had three stars — Michelin's highest recommendation — for his cooking at the Pavillon Ledoyen restaurant in Paris.

The addition Thursday of 70 new starred restaurants — the largest annual increase in the guide in the past decade — means France now has 616 restaurants with one or more Michelin stars.

The 2017 guide goes on sale next Wednesday.
