So the Michelin guide has been ‘leaked’ early. I say ‘leaked’ – they did list the new rankings own their own website before taking it down. PR vibes etc.
Great to see that Paul Ainsworth finally gets his first star. Simon Rogan (L’enclume) gets his second and I would put money on him becoming the 5th UK restaurant currently with 3 stars in the next few years. Pierre Gagnaire at Sketch and Micheal Wignall at Latymer, Pennyhill Park, also get their second stars.
