Two restaurants on Mallorca have each won their first Michelin star. The Oscars of the culinary world were announced this evening at the annual awards ceremony, held this year in Girona at the gastronomic events space Mas Marroch – owned by the Roca brothers.
For the first time, the restaurant Adrián Quetglas in Palma gained one star, as did Argos in Puerto Pollensa, where young chef Álvaro Salazar is at the helm. Both restaurants are excellent. I had dinner at Adrián Quetglas on my birthday recently, but Adrián was in Russia that night – collecting his ‘chef of the year’ award there. His Moscow restaurant AQ was also named third-best restaurant in Russia; Adrián has plenty to celebrate right now …
Other stars for 2017 remain as in 2016:
- Andreu Genestra
- Es Fum
- Es Racó d’es Teix
- Marc Fosh
Congratulations to everyone involved, but why no star for DINS Santi Taura … ?
