Florida’s Michelin-Starred Restaurants

The Michelin Guide arrives in Florida with Miami restaurants taking center stage.


The Michelin Guide (finally!) arrived in Florida in early June with 15 restaurants in Miami, Orlando and Tampa earning sought-after stars—and, unsurprisingly, 11 of those restaurants are in Miami. Although no restaurants received three stars, L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon was the only restaurant in Florida to receive two stars, and the remaining 10 Miami restaurants earned one star.

Though these spots will no doubt be booked up for a while given their newfound star status, you’re going to want to start making reservations as soon as possible. Here’s your list to choose from!
