Heston Blumenthal’s The Fat Duck Makes Its Way Back to the Michelin Guide

Michelin releases its 2017 guide for Great Britain and Ireland, available today

Michelin has released its 2017 guide for Great Britain and Ireland, out today, complete with a ceremony and live broadcast, Eater detailed.

Three restaurants received the top honor of a three-star rating, 21 received two stars, and 147 restaurants were awarded one star.

Eighteen restaurants received their first-ever Michelin star, including The Wild Rabbit in Oxfordshire, England, Heron & Grey in Dublin, Ireland, and James Sommerin in Penarth, Wales.

Heston Blumenthal’s The Fat Duck in Bray, England, made a comeback for this year’s guide. The longtime three-starred establishment was not included in last year’s guide as the restaurant was closed for much of 2015. However, The Fat Duck has returned for the 2017 guide, along with its three-star rating.

“Our inspectors had many meals here during the course of the year and found the restaurant invigorated, rejuvenated and unquestionably worthy of being reawarded our highest accolade,” said Rebecca Burr, editor of the Michelin Guide Great Britain and Ireland 2017.
