The MICHELIN Guide has OFFICIALLY Made its Debut in Argentina

The MICHELIN Guide has OFFICIALLY made its debut in Argentina, which includes 1 Two MICHELIN Star and 6 One MICHELIN Star establishments, as well as 7 Bib Gourmands and 7 Green Stars.

Argentina is a destination widely recognized for its rich food culture, as well as an international celebration of its dynamic culinary scene, becoming the first Hispanic Latin-American country highlighted by the Guide! The selection was curated by the Guide’s inspectors who used the historical and global methodology to hand pick a total of 71 establishments (52 in Buenos Aires and 19 in Mendoza). This new collection of restaurants will give diners the opportunity to appreciate Argentinean cuisine far beyond the country’s famous grilled meats.

The arrival of the MICHELIN Guide had the support of Argentina’s Ministry of Tourism and Sports and the National Institute for Tourism Promotion, whose Minister Matías Lammens expressed: “This represents a turning point for both our gastronomy and tourism. I believe that the MICHELIN guide will have an enormous impact in Argentina. It builds on the position of our country as the gastronomic capital of the region. This is something that we had already been working on due to the potential we knew we had; yet it is always important to have such recognition by a top-quality brand such as MICHELIN.”
