(Santa Cruz de Campezo), Cancook (Zaragoza), Casa Nova (Sant Martí Sarroca, Barcelona), Casona del Judío (Santander), El Visco (Fuentespalda, Teruel), Casa Nova (Sant Martí Sarroca, Barcelona), Las Moles (Ulldecona, Tarragona), Maskarada (Lekunberri, Navarra), Muxgo (Las Palmas de Gran Canaria), Narbasu (Cereceda, Asturias), Oba (Casas-Ibáñez), Venta Moncalvillo (Daroca de Rioja, La Rioja) and Zelai Txiki (San Sebastián).
In addition, the Bib Gourmand selection that rewards the best value for money already has 243 proposals, incorporating 31 establishments.
Two Spanish restaurants with three stars
As for the restaurants that have received Michelin stars this year, Atrium (Cáceres) and Hermanos Torres Kitchen (Barcelona) They go up to the Olympus of the three stars, highest distinction that the guide has not granted in Spain since 2020, with which there are already 13 three-starred restaurants, to which are added three new ones with two stars and 29 that are opening the first one.
The third 'brightness' was not awarded to two restaurants since the 2018 edition -Aponiente (El Puerto de Santa María, Cádiz) and ABaC (Barcelona)- and it was Cenador de Amós (Villaverde de Pontones, Cantabria), the last three-starred in the one of 2020.
The Guide also includes the concession of the second star to Deessa (Madrid), Pepe Vieira (Serpe, Pontevedra) and El Rincón de Juan Carlos (Adeje, Tenerife)and the first for 29 restaurants, many of them run by young people who have taken risks with projects in their small towns.
Catalonia, thanks to Barcelona, is the community most recognized by Michelin, followed by that of Madrid, compared to the scarce presence of the Basque Country or the null presence of the Valencian Community, protagonists in previous editions.
