Michelin Guide has announced the restaurants of Slovenia that received a star in 2021. Accordingly, one restaurant received a Michelin star, a restaurant a Green Star, and a restaurant a Bib Gourmand award, while two new restaurants were included in the guide for the first time. Gostišče Grič received a new Michelin star, and Vila Podvin received a Michelin Green Star.
“Both 2020 and 2021 have been difficult years for the restaurant business. Having to cope with the repeated opening and closing of their restaurants, Slovenian chefs have nevertheless proved their resilience, fighting spirit and unvarying talent, which greatly impressed us. So the selection of restaurants we’re presenting today reflects the local culinary scene, which is particularly committed to sustainable gastronomy, and which is continuing to develop. We do hope with all our hearts that this new selection will help attract gourmets back to the restaurants, and to discover or rediscover Slovenia through its best restaurant tables”, comments Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of the MICHELIN Guides.
