Taillevent restaurant downgraded by Michelin

Famous Parisian restaurant Taillevent, which has held three Michelin stars for 34 years, lost one in the 2007 edition of Michelin's France guide.

The restaurant, which gained its first star in 1949, was one of two acclaimed establishments to lose its prestigious third star - Le Cinq at the Four Seasons George V hotel in Paris was also demoted to two stars.

Michelin promoted five restaurants to three stars, including Pic, in the southern city of Valence. This marks a historic moment for the restaurant, as its chef, Anne-Sophie Pic, is only the fourth woman to be given Michelin's top award since the guide began using the star system in 1926.

The France guide, which went on sale yesterday (28 February), includes 26 three-star restaurants, with 21 having retained their rating. Among those that disappeared, La Ferme de Mon Père in Megève was sold by Marc Veyrat last year, while Buerehiesel, in Strasbourg, and l'Espérance, in Vézelay, were removed from the guide. Michelin added seven new two-star and 50 one-star restaurants to the guide.
