The 66th annual edition of the famed Michelin Guide Italy was officially rolled out in Milan—streamed, of course. Here is a summary of the judgments for 2021.
An Olympian Three Stars were confirmed for 11 recipients, while the Two Star winners rose to 37, with 3 new entries, Davide Oldani’s D’O in Cornaredo (Milan), Matteo Metullio’s Harry’s Piccolo in Trieste, and Rocco De Santis’ Santa Elisabetta in Florence. 26 restaurants—a full 5 in Tuscany!–received their first Star, bringing that overall total to 323.
A small but gratifying note: The starred toques include 16 chefs under 35, with 4 of those under 30.
And 13 Green Stars were awarded to chefs who dedicate particular attention to sustainability, from Massimo Bottura to Norbert Niederkofler and Alfonso Iaccarino.
Congratulations to all the bright, new stars in the Michelin constellation!
