200 (of the 616) Michelin starred chefs have been invited to the Seine Musicale today to an Oscar awards-like ceremony for the unveiling of the Michelin 2018 France Guide. French Prime Minister, Edouard Philippe, will also be attending.
Michel Ellis, director of Michelin guide, confirmed Michelin star recipients will be informed live during the ceremony of the distinction they have been awarded.
The printed hard-copy version of the guide will be available in bookshops as of February 9.
Le Seine Musicale, which opened in April 2017, is an egg-shaped performing arts centre located just west of Paris, designed by Jean Nouvel that can seat 1150 people.
