FLORIDA — Through a partnership with Visit Florida and other tourism organizations, Miami, Orlando and Tampa area restaurants can start earning Michelin stars for the first time starting next year.

The inaugural edition of “The Michelin Guide Miami, Orlando and Tampa” will be announced in 2022, according to a news release from Michelin North America.

"Michelin Guide inspectors look forward to discovering the world-class culinary landscape in Miami, Orlando and Tampa," Gwendal Poullennec, international director of the Michelin Guides, said. "From the excitement and glamour of Miami to Orlando's iconic attractions and the rich culture of Tampa's Gulf Coast, Florida's gastronomy is unique, diverse and intriguing for locals and travelers across the globe."

The new restaurant selections will join Michelin's selection of extraordinary hotels in Florida, curated by Tablet Hotels.

This expansion of the restaurant guide into Florida represents Michelin’s fifth destination in the United States, the company said.

In addition to Visit Florida, other tourism agencies that collaborated on this expansion include Visit Orlando, Visit Tampa Bay and Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau.

"This gives Florida the opportunity to highlight the dynamic and unexpected culinary adventures the Sunshine State has to offer from locally-grown produce and fresh seafood to unique fusions from cultures around the world," Dana Young, president and CEO of Visit Florida, said
