Michelin stars awarded – but not here (again)

A total of 122 establishments now have the top Michelin-star status, more than ever before.
But not one has found its way to Manchester.
Guide editor Derek Bulmer said that London and the Channel Islands have done particularly well.
“More and more chefs are opening in London, so there are more listed than ever. The Channel Islands have also done well. The area is able to support these sort of restaurants, it’s been very successful.”
So what does that say about us? Fewer chefs seem prepared to take the risk on the city, quality places such as Establishment going and now the spectre of free parking in the city centre due to be scrapped.

Will we ever be in the running? Does it matter? Let me know what you think below.

In yesterday’s announcement Single Michelin stars were newly awarded to 13 establishments, including one in Wales, two in Scotland and one in the Republic of Ireland.
Here’s the full list.
