11 unlucky restaurants lost a Michelin star in this year’s guide. The most dramatic drop was L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon, which went from two Michelin stars to one, perhaps reflecting the rise in standard in restaurants around it in London.
L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon is a brand with a worldwide presence with locations’ rankings ranging from one to three stars. His Hong Kong and Macau outposts boast all three stars, for instance, while the flagship Parisian restaurant has two. The deletion reduces Robuchon’s star count from 28 to 27.
