A first for France, one of the countries that have the busiest gastronomy scene… Serving only vegan food, ONA became the first fully vegan restaurant that received a Michelin star.
Claire Vallée, the owner restaurant located in the southwestern part of the country and doesn’t use any animal products, shared her thoughts to the CNN Travel with the words “This is a good thing for the vegan community as this star is evidence that French gastronomy is becoming more inclusive. That plant based dishes belong there too. The team that I work with are really proud. The Michelin star and the green star serve as recognition. It’s also for them and the local producers and the vegetable farmers we work with.”
