This year, the Michelin stars gala took place in Lisbon, where the new stars for Spain and Portugal were announced.
A restaurant with its 3rd Michelin star
The only restaurant to be awarded its third Michelin star, both in Spain and in Portugal, was Dani Garcia, located in Marbella, Spain. Its chef, Dani Garcia, prepares the most sophisticated traditional Andalusian cuisine. Although it may seem like an oxymoron, the key to his success is the balancing of tradition with the market’s latest gastronomy trends to offer an innovative culinary experience.
Three restaurants with their second Michelin star
The three restaurants that received their second “macaroon” were: Cocina Hermanos Torres, belonging to the Torres brothers, in Barcelona; El Molino de Urdániz, belonging to chef David Yarnoz, in Urdaitz (Navarra); and Ricard Camarena, belonging to chef Ricard Camarena, in Valencia (Valencian Community).
In Portugal, the Restaurant Alma (Lisbon), serving signature cuisine, also obtained its second star.
