The wait is finally over. With the release of Beijing’s first-ever Michelin Guide, which dropped earlier today, a new chapter for the city’s F&B scene has officially launched. Featuring 100 establishments, the guide includes Bib Gourmand and Michelin Plate selections, as well as the elusive stars list. 

Dubbed a highly inclusive city, “Beijing is under the spotlight of the global gastronomic community with many world-famous chefs branching out their businesses here. The booming industry is a demonstration of an ancient yet vibrant city glittering with a combination of classic and modern,” said Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of the Michelin Guides on the company’s press release. 

The sole three-star recognition in the book was awarded to Xin Rong Ji (Xinyuan South Road), a restaurant that focuses on Taizhou cooking with fish from the East China Sea. This first-ever Beijing three-star selection is said to offer a “complete and extremely enjoyable dining experience made possible by comprehensive orchestration and thoughtful arrangement,” impressing the inspectors with “uncompromising perfection.”
