The MICHELIN Star Award Ceremony for Moscow restaurants and their chefs will take place on 14 October. The first edition of the gastronomic guide to Russia's capital will be unveiled in the concert hall of Zaryadye Park.
This makes Russia the 33rd country featured in a MICHELIN Guide and makes Moscow the first city in the CIS with MICHELIN-starred cafés and restaurants. According to the Deputy Mayor of Moscow Natalya Sergunina, the awarding of MICHELIN stars to Moscow restaurants will stimulate the development of gastronomic tourism, as tourists will take this fact into account when planning their trips to the city. The guide's release will also contribute to the development of Moscow's gastronomic market.
First published in 1900, the MICHELIN Guides are the most famous source of gastronomic rankings in the world. The selection process is strictly confidential: experts travel anonymously and draw up detailed reviews, which are then used to rate the restaurants. The number of stars that a restaurant can be awarded ranges from one to three.
