Today is the day. A day of excitement, fear and reckoning for the F&B industry in Shanghai. Riding on 2020's COVID-rocked coattails, 2021 should have been deemed the Year of the Phoenix as many newcomers rose from the ashes. More than anything, the industry banded together, proving a resilience that afforded a select few reward in the form of a Michelin star. 

At a press conference this morning at the Shanghai Xijiao State Guest Hotel, Michelin announced its 2022 picks for Shanghai in their sixth installment of the city's guide. Whether you buy into the Michelin hype or not, the 2022 Michelin Guide is bound to influence our city's chefs, diners and restaurants. 

With prestige and influence that can propel a restaurant to the top of the ranks, the Michelin Guide identifies the very best in regional dining, breaking down their picks into seven categories this year: Three Star, Two Star, One Star, Bib Gourmand, Michelin Plate, Young Chef and Service Award.

While Paul Pairet's Ultraviolet remained alone at the top of the pack with three stars at the end of last year, both Bao Li Xuan and Da Vittorio made the jump into double star status. Will Ultraviolet retain its advantageously solo spot or will others quickly climb the ranks and move alongside it?  

Let's get on with the good stuff. We present to you the full list of this year's winners: 

Three Stars

"A restaurant worth a special journey, indicating exceptional cuisine where diners eat extremely well, often superbly. Distinctive dishes are precisely executed, using superlative ingredients."

*Taian Table was also awarded the first Michelin Green Star in Shanghai – given to restaurants which stand at the forefront of a more sustainable approach to gastronomy.

Two Stars

"A restaurant worth a detour, indicating excellent cuisine, skillfully and carefully crafted dishes of outstanding quality."

One Star

"A good place to stop on your journey, indicating a very good restaurant in its category, offering cuisine prepared to a consistently high standard."

Young Chef Award

“Recognizes their personality and the identity of their culinary creations.”

Service Award

“Making the restaurant visit a true experience.”

Bib Gourmand Restaurants

"Fantastic cooking at prices under RMB200 per person."
