Three restaurants celebrate Michelin success
Luxury Jersey Hotels members and partners came up tops in the 2019 Michelin Guide Great Britain & Ireland. The Guide was launched at the annual awards ceremony which was held at the BFI IMAX Cinema in London on 4 October.
Bohemia Restaurant retained its Michelin star for the 14th year running. Head Chef Steve Smith said: “We are absolutely delighted that our passion and commitment has been recognised once again! The whole team has worked so hard over the past year to retain this accolade and I am thrilled… Jersey is renowned for its high standard of gourmet dining, and we are proud to play our part in this.”
Samphire joins Bohemia as Jersey's second recipient of one Michelin Star in the 2019 Guide. The restaurant opened in the Spring of 2018, having previously operated as Ormer Restaurant. The restaurant's re-brand saw it further evolve its offering to better cater to changing dining habits. Samphire now offers various menus and dining options from breakfast until late so guests can enjoy relaxed yet polished dining throughout the day.
Michelin stars are awarded based on five assessment criteria: quality of the products, mastery of flavour and cooking techniques, the personality of the chef in his / her cuisine, value for money, and consistency between visits.
Maintaining its Michelin Bib Gourmand for the seventh consecutive year, Mark Jordan at the Beach is also celebrating following the release of the 2019 Michelin Guide. The restaurant is the only one in the Channel Islands to have received this award which acknowledges good quality food at reasonable prices.
