Spanish gastronomy shined once again with a starburst at the 2023 Michelin Guide premiere held at the ‘El Greco’ Conference Center in Toledo. The French guide has once again featured a Spanish restaurant with its highest award, after two years of not doing so.
The year 2022 has been a year of great expansion in our country and has shown that gastronomy is still more alive than ever. This is also acknowledged by the Michelin Guide on a starry night. Red Guide 29 awarded one new Michelin star, 3 new two Michelin stars and 2 three Michelin stars.
The head of the Michelin Guide in Spain and Portugal described the gala as a “night of celebration” for the effort Spanish gastronomy has made in this two-year crisis due to the Covid pandemic.
The red ‘libriloo’ has not been denied awards and has valued the bets of the youngest chefs who have made a bet to be part of the Michelin firm.
Atrio and Cocina Hermanos Torres, three new Michelin stars
Atrio and Cocina Hermanos Torres are two new restaurants selected to enter the three Michelin-starred Olympus. Twins Sergio and Javier Torres expressed their happiness after finishing the premiere and that they will continue to work on “raising the stars”.
The Torres brothers make no secret of seeking this long-awaited recognition, and the dedication at Cocina hermanos Torres has been fantastic. They told the media, “Our TV projects have nothing to do with the stars, but they helped us make enough money to make our investments.”
With this award, Atrio and Cocina Hermanos Torres join eleven other restaurants that have received three ‘macaroons’ from the Michelin Guide. The full list of restaurants with three Michelin stars stays that way for 2023.
