The Michelin Guide is releasing a Red Guide, their annual publication, for Beijing. Launching in November, the new edition will detail the Chinese capital’s first lot of Michelin-starred restaurants.

China received its first guide in its most populous city, Shanghai, in 2016, and then another guide for Guangzhou followed in 2018. This year, however, will see the capital finally receive Michelin-official international recognition for its diverse dining scene. Gwendal Poullennec, international director for the Michelin Guides, said, “Beijing’s cuisine, with its well-chosen ingredients and rich seasonings, is a jewel in the crown of Chinese and global cuisine. We hope that with this new Michelin Guide, more food lovers will come to appreciate Beijing’s abundant food culture and experience the wonderful flavours it has to offer.”
