America's Only Michelin-Starred Korean Barbecue Has an In-House Dry Aging Room — K-Town
Hamburger joint accidentally gets Michelin star
The INSIDER Summary
• A Michelin star was accidentally given to the wrong restaurant in France.• It was given to a bistro named Le Bouche a Oreille.• There is a gourmet restaurant also named Le Bouche a Oreille located 100 miles away that was supposed to receive the star.• The star has since been given to the appropriate restaurant.
By standards, you're awarded a Michelin star because your restaurant is top-quality, has amazing service, and serves out-of-this-world, revolutionary food.
Other times, you're awarded a Michelin star because the Michelin Guide accidentally confuses you with another restaurant.
That's what happened to Le Bouche à Oreille in Bourges, France, who was awarded a Michelin star based on the interactive map released by the Michelin Guide earlier this month. However, according to the New York Times, the Michelin star was actually meant for a restaurant with the same name — but over 100 miles away, in Boutervilliers.
The differences between the two restaurants could not be more stark. The Bourges location is a small, lunch-only bistro that offers burgers, fries, a buffet, and specializes in sausage and lentils, all priced at less than .50. The Boutervilliers Michelin-starred location has lobster, turbot, and foie gras regularly on the menu, and it's prices can range from 20-60 Euros.
Despite all of the confusion,Le Bouche à Oreille in Boutervilliers will be keeping its Michelin star,and the mix-up has since been fixed. However, the Bourges location did benefit from all of the media attention it's getting as a result — and the owner even has an invite to come eat at the Michelin-starred restaurant of the same name.
What a great silver lining to this Michelin-starred mishap.
