And urges customers to continue to support their local pub or restaurant
It's proving a great start to 2009 for Chiswick restaurateur Nigel Platts-Martin.
First he receives an MBE in the New Year's Honours List and then both La Trompette and Chez Bruce retain their one Michelin star status.
Platts-Martin's The Ledbury also took one of the three places on the list of ‘Rising Stars’ (tipped for two stars) alongside Tom Aikens and Nathan Outlaw .
The 2009 Michelin Guide awarded 21 new establishments noted for offering ‘good food at moderate prices’ ie. three courses for less than £28 with Bib Gourmands including Le Vacherin's sister restaurant Le Cassoulet.
“This was another good year for London. With plenty of new restaurant openings, the capital can boast of having the one of the most varied and diverse restaurant scenes in the world.
