Vancouver Receives Canada's Second Michelin Guide; 8 Restaurants Each Earn 1 Star

A first for the city and second for Canada overall, Vancouver's inaugural Michelin Guide has been published, with eight restaurants earning one-star recognition, and 12 receiving Bib Gourmands. As reported by Open Jaw, Toronto became the first city in Canada to receive Michelin stars back in SEP.

Vancouver's full selection, including Recommended eateries, totals 60 restaurants.

“Our teams of inspectors genuinely savored their dining experiences in Vancouver,” said Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of the MICHELIN Guides. “They were very impressed with the city’s gastronomic dynamism. The selection – from Stars to Bib Gourmands to the Recommended spots – are all appealing in their own authentic DNA, and very diverse offers. They all can be very proud of their entry in the MICHELIN Guide family, as we’re pleased to highlight them to our community of foodies and travelers.”
