So, Grand Vefour did indeed get demoted, with congratulations to seafood-oriented Le Petit Nice joining the 3 star ranks. This completes the Michelin guides for 2008, and there are 68 three star establishments now in total. 26 of these are in France. The full list of 3 star places can be found here. I have also updated the map of 3 star establishments.
In France there were eight new 2 star places, bringing the total to 68 in all. There are also 435 one star establishments, 52 of these newly promoted. Overall, then, a fairly quiet year for Michelin in France at the top end.
