The State of Florida is now home to several Michelin star restaurants. Miami and South Florida are the recent areas to join the exclusive list, welcoming 11 Michelin star restaurants.
While the Michelin brand is globally well-known for its tires, the Paris-based company is also famous for its annual Michelin Guide. The prestigious red guide dates all the way back to 1900, when Michelin began encouraging new drivers to take road trips to local attractions. Among other things, the guide included anonymous European restaurant reviews that focused on the quality and flavor of food served, as well as knowledge of culinary technique and personality of the dishes. In 2005 U.S. restaurants became eligible to earn Michelin stars for the first time.
In 2022, YML Portable Restrooms and YML Cleaning and Event Services have serviced multiple events hosted by Michelin in South Florida prior to the launch and to introduce the brand to the area. The newly named Michelin star restaurants earned one Michelin star and only one restaurant earned two stars, L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon.
