Tampa, FL (June 15, 2022) – The inaugural edition of the MICHELIN Guide Florida has been revealed! After years of carefully reviewing restaurants in Tampa, Miami and Orlando, the MICHELIN Guide’s top-secret inspectors have revealed that Tampa Bay received three Bib Gourmands and 16 restaurant recommendations.

The MICHELIN Guide’s unique restaurant rating system for Bib Gourmands and recommendations consists of three-line short summaries and an extensive system of symbols recognizing great food at a great value. Bib Gourmand restaurants are where one can have two courses and a glass of wine or dessert for under $49 and recommendation restaurants are a sign of a chef using quality ingredients that are well cooked and simply a good meal.

“It is an incredible honor for Tampa Bay to be a part of the world-renowned MICHELIN Guide,” says Santiago C. Corrada, President and CEO of Visit Tampa Bay. “We have been raising the bar with our amazing culinary scene and the fact that it came to MICHELIN’s attention is rewarding.”
