Restaurants around the World
According to the Michelin Guide (2008), Tokyo, Japan is home to 160,000 restaurants, 191 of which have been given Michelin Stars. Of the 23,000 restaurants in New York City, 54 have been given Michelin stars. Finally Paris has 20,000 restaurants, 98 of which have been given Michelin stars.
So what does this mean?
In Tokyo only 0.12% of the restaurants have Michelin stars. In New York that statistic is almost doubled to 0.23% of restaurants having Michelin stars, and in Paris 0.49% of restaurants have Michelin stars.
Clearly owning a restaurant that receives a Michelin star is a great accomplishment. We have some of these chefs submitting their recipes to us!
