This year's listing, which was announced earlier today, sees Atelier get bumped up from two to three stars and four restaurants receive two stars in the Michelin Guide Germany 2018.

The Michelin Guide Germany 2018 has unveiled its list of restaurants to receive a coveted star this year. Among them are Atelier in Munich which is the only new addition to the three star category, while four restaurants receive two stars for the first time and a further 29 earn one star.

Headed up by chef de cuisine, Jan Hartwig Atelier at Hotel Bayerischer receives the much sought after third star. Jan earned Atlelier its first star not long after joining the brigade in 2014 which was followed by a second star a year later. Prior to Atlelier Jan worked at the three starred aqua, at the Ritz-Carlton in Wolfsburg alongside Sven Elverfeld where he remained for seven years. 

Speaking of Atelier, Michael Ellis, international director in charge of the Michelin Guides said: "In just three years, Chef Jan Hartwig has given his cuisine a very personal signature. The dishes he offers stand out with their deep and complex flavours, their intelligent compositions combined with remarkable technical skills."

With the coveted third star this now brings Germany’s collection of three-starred restaurants to a total of11.

Elsewhere, Keilings restaurant, Schwarzenstein Nils Henkel, Wald & Schlosshotel Friedrichsruhe - Gourmet restaurant "Le Cerf" and Courtier all join the likes of other two starred restaurants including Tim Raue with his eponymous restaurant as well as Rutz, Opus V and Geisels Werneckhof, which all retain their two stars from last year.  With the new additions this now brings the total of two starred restaurants in Germany 39.

An impressive 29 restaurants have also received a star for the first time in this year's edition of the guide.

460 restaurants, including 33 new ones, have been awarded a Bib Gourmand in the Michelin Guide Germany 2018; an award given to restaurants serving good quality food that is also good value for money. In Germany, a Bib Gourmand restaurant will offer a three-course menu (starter, main course, and dessert) for a maximum of 37 euros.

The Michelin Guide Germany 2018 will be on sale in bookstores from November 17, 2017 for 29.95 euros (in Austria: 30.80 euros, in Switzerland: 39 Swiss francs), and is accessible online at https: //www.bookatable.com/de.
