11 Miami restaurants earned Michelin stars 


Miami is now home to many Michelin stars. The most famous international restaurant ranking guide in the world awarded for the first time its coveted stars at restaurants located in Florida, focusing on three cities: Miami, Orlando and Tampa.

The city of Miami alone has 10 one-star and one two-star restaurants, L'atelier de Joel Robuchon, located in the Design District. The French restaurant is now run by chef Alain Verzeroli and his team formed by the famous Joël Robuchon, who has 31 Michelin stars.

“The Miami scene was a real exploration,” said one of the guide's anonymous inspectors. “We knew of prestigious names like Thomas Keller and Joël Robuchon, but while digging we discovered places run by local talents, like Michael Beltran from Ariete and Luciana Giangrandi and Alex Meyer from Boia De, and we were really happy to highlight them. We knew the Miami scene would be interesting, but I have to say that being able to give it 11 stars is an exception. Everyone knows that Miami is a global superstar. And everyone now wants to settle there.

L'atelier de Joel Robuchon

It's no surprise that what is Miami's most serious and almost conscientious expression of fine dining should establish itself as the only restaurant in the entire state of Florida with two Michelin stars. It is, after all, an outpost of the empire named after the late Joël Robuchon, who earned 32 Michelin stars during his lifetime. A culinary team of Robuchon proteges deliver tasting and a la carte menus as jaw-dropping as any in town, in a state-of-the-art, red-on-black space that speaks to the seriousness of the whole thing.
