Just six months after reopening, Espadon Restaurant at The Ritz Paris, picks up a Michelin star. The arrival of Eugénie Béziat marks a new culinary chapter on place Vendome as the cheffe creates joyful, gourmet cuisine that’s colorful and generous. Only six women were among the newly starred chefs this year, each receiving one star, and only cheffe Béziat was awarded one on her own. 

Other women earned their stars as part of duos with male co-chefs – including Adeline Lesage for Nacre near Bordeaux, Emilie Roussey for Le Moulin de Cambelong outside Toulouse and Florencia Montes for Onice, Nice. And a rare duo of female chefs – Manon Fleury and Laurène Barjhoux – earned a star for their restaurant Datil, Paris.

52 restaurants throughout the Hexagon have scored their first star. “They showcase a rising new generation of young talented chefs under 40 years of age, but we need more women,” said Director Gwendal Poullenec. To date, Anne Sophie Pic is the only female chef to helm a three-star restaurant.

At Le Jules Verne, magnificently located on the second floor of the Eiffel Tower, Chef Frédéric Anton and his Executive Chef Kevin Garcia now have two stars. In the 8th arrondissement, Martino Ruggieri earns a second star for Maison Ruggieri one year after his first. At L’Orangerie, Chef Alain Taudon adds another star to the George V’s gastronomic offering.

Chef Thomas Danigo (32) has gleaned his his first star! Located, with a terrace, at the Monsieur George Hotel (rue Washington, 8th), the restaurant has divine design by Anoushka Hempel, painted in shades of green, with a traditional zellige tiled floor and velvet banquettes. Like the Paris dining room of a Turkish-Moroccan-inspired palace.

Chez Hémicycle (5, rue de Bourgogne, 7th), whose name is a nod to the nearby Assemblée Nationale and its semi-circular debating chamber, the duo – and real-life couple – of Flavio Lucarini (savory) and Aurora Storari (desserts) achieve harmony with their creative cuisine d’auteur, now awarded a Michelin star. 

Paris is ready and waiting for the Gastronomic Olympics! Bon séjour!
