ZAGREB, Feb 23 (Hina) – Croatian restaurant owners and chefs are waiting for the most acclaimed restaurant guide, Michelin, to announce its annual selection of restaurants on its digital platforms, while this year the first printed edition of the Michelin Guide for Croatia is expected to be issued in English, the National Tourist Board has said.
In the past two years, this was the time of the year when Michelin announced the names of restaurants that deserved a star or a recommendation. The selection for the second edition of the Michelin Guide Croatia was announced in early March 2018.
Last year’s edition includes a total of 62 restaurants, nearly twice as many as in 2017 when 34 establishments were included in the prestigious guide.
The first Michelin star in Croatia was presented in early 2017 to “Monte” in Rovinj, and the year later the acknowledgement for the quality of food, cooking skills and creativity was awarded to “Pelegrini” in Sibenik and the Dubrovnik-based restaurant “360°”.
In addition to these three restaurants, Michelin inspectors concluded a year ago that more than 50 Croatian restaurants deserved their special recommendation.
The list was almost doubled compared to the previous year, so everyone is now waiting for the opinion of Michelin’s inspectors for 2019.
A look at some of the restaurants which could be in the running for a Michelin star this year in Croatia here.
Michelin will announce its annual stars and recommendations for European restaurants on 11 March.
