So the 2010 Michelin for France is out...

New 3-star on the block? Auberge du Vieux Puits, in Fontjoncouse.

Ten restaurants were bumped up from one star to two.

And, of course, much will be said about Helene Darroze's and Les Ambassadeurs' demotions... Hers, surely due to the London venture. And Les Ambassadeurs, due to the departure of J-F Piège.

Here is the complete list of 3-starred restaurants, and the demotions:

I can't believe there have been no replies/comments to this! What do people think of these results?

I was happy to see the Passage 53 get a star, they deserve it just as much , if not more than Yam T'cha. Bigarrade, not so sure...

Anyone else?

I think you're right. They've been flagging for ages. I think finally this is a case of David (online food writing) killing Goliath (ie, them). I don't think I've ever seen a Guide Rouge launch drawing less interest. There was, of course, the initial twitterverse/blogosphere frenzy, every Tom, Dick and Harry food blogger hoping to announce the results first. But after a couple hours, it died down and nobody really cared...

Hello Adrian!

A couple of things that struck me:

I really thought all the **s popping up in Courchevel and Trois Vallees was interesting (and not only because my favourite restaurant in the Alps L'Oxalys got a well deserved **). As I have noted elsewhere I presume Courchevel is partly due to the Russian influence (and their disposable money).

I noticed Moulin de Mougins went up to * (I think). Gosh that place has been up and down like a yo-yo in recent years, right?

On a similarly historic vein didn't Au Crocodile which went to * used to be a *** not too long ago?

So many restaurants, so little time!

Emile Jung retired from Au Crocodile last year. It is now part of the Philippe Bohrer chain: http://www.au-crocodile.com/crbst_27.html and http://philippe-bohrer.fr/restaurant-gastronomique/ so the change is the reason for loss of a star. Bohrer hasn't yet managed to get two stars at his Rouffach restaurant.
