The Italian restaurant Cipriani, headed by Napoleon Chef Nello Cassese, stands out with its innovative tasting menu, Otequ, and another Italian restaurant in São Paulo, Evvai are the new restaurants that just entered the guide this year.
Alex Atala’s restaurant, D.O.M, Ivan Ralston’s Tuju and Felipe Bronze’s Oro, have maintained their two-star rating this year as well.
Speaking at the award ceremony, the International Director of the Michelin Guide, Gwendal Poullennec, pointed out that many restaurants in Brazil now have solar panels and systems to convert food waste into compost: birçok Brazil’s kitchen scene is not only famous chefs, but also healthy and sustainable. It is created by the contributions of young chefs who are determined to create gastronomy.
