Michelin stars for 2017 to be revealed in October at live event

The names of restaurants being awarded new Michelin stars in Great Britain and Ireland will be announced on 3 October at a live event.

The event, to mark the publication of the Michelin Guide Great Britain and Ireland 2017, will be the first of its kind and is expected to attract top chefs and food industry figures.

Michael Ellis, international director of the Michelin Guides, will break the news at the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), Savoy Place, London on 3 October.

Ellis said: "We're very excited about this inaugural event and I'm very much looking forward to celebrating with so many talented people.

"The Michelin Guide was introduced in France in 1900 to let motorists know where they could find good food and accommodation, where the most scenic driving routes were and where to buy driving essentials like tyres.

Rebecca Burr, editor of the Michelin Guide Great Britain and Ireland, said the 2017 edition would continue to reflect the changing culinary landscape of Great Britain and Ireland.

She added: "The last 10 years have seen the emergence of a host of different types of restaurant producing excellent food under the guidance of extremely talented young chefs.

"Michelin inspectors will continue to make anonymous visits and to pay their own bills, and we will continue to offer expert, objective and consistent information to our readers."

The first Michelin Guide for the British Isles appeared in 1911. The Michelin Guide Great Britain and Ireland now recommends more than 3,300 places to eat and sleep - including those restaurants and pubs awarded Michelin stars for the quality of their food.

Last year, the Guide was released in September, with the announcement of 15 new one star establishment and two new two stars.
