Mark your calendars for the very first selection of the MICHELIN Guide in the Middle-East, to be revealed in June 2022
The renowned MICHELIN Guide is finally coming to Dubai this June 2022. Prepare to discover a fine selection of restaurants lauded with Michelin stars, across the city.
Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of the MICHELIN Guides, conveyed delight at Dubai joining the MICHELIN Guide family. He went on to say that their team of inspectors is already in the field, in order to prepare the first selection of restaurants, which will be revealed in June 2022.
The Michelin Guide Dubai will be showcasing the best of Dubai’s gastronomy, to reflect not just the sophistication that the city is famed for, but also the wide diversity of cuisines that the city’s location and history provide.
Issam Kazim, Chief Executive Officer of Dubai Corporation for Tourism and Commerce Marketing explained that this latest accolade for Dubai is also recognition of its emergence as a global gastronomy hub, inspired by the goal of our visionary leadership to make Dubai the world’s most sought-after destination and the best city to live and work in.
Home to over two hundred nationalities, Dubai has emerged from a trading port in the Arabian Gulf to become one of the world’s most diverse lifestyle destinations. Thanks to this dynamism, Dubai has developed a very fascinating dining culture that takes influence from global cuisines, including the emirate’s very own Arabic specialties.
The selection of Dubai restaurants will be made according to the tried and tested MICHELIN methods applied all over the world, by the inspectors of the MICHELIN Guide, based on its universally applied set of five criteria. These include, the quality of the ingredients, the mastery of cooking, the harmony of flavours, the personality of the chef through the cuisine and the consistency both over time and across the entire menu.
One MICHELIN Star is awarded to restaurants for “high quality cooking that is worth a stop,” Two MICHELIN Stars for “excellent cooking that is worth a detour” and Three MICHELIN Stars for “exceptional cuisine that is worth a special journey.”
Besides the coveted star ratings, the selection will also include the popular Bib Gourmand category, a distinction awarded to establishments that provide value-for-money three course meals.
The full 2022 selection of the MICHELIN Guide Dubai restaurants worldwide will be available on the MICHELIN Guide website and on the MICHELIN Guide App,
