Last month saw the announcement of the NEW Michelin Guide for Spain and Portugal 2014.

A new Michelin 3 star restaurant was awarded to Spain for 2014, along with two new Michelin 2 star restaurants, and various new Michelin 1 star restaurants.

In total, for 2014, there are 17 Michelin 2 Star restaurants in Spain.  This year Martín Berasategui adds his “M.B” restaurant in Guía de Isora, Santa Cruz de Tenerife to the Michelin 2 star category where it joins his already awarded “Lasarte” in Barcelona.

Francis Paniego also joins the elite Michelin 2 star crew with his “El Portal del Echaurren” restaurant in Ezcaray, La Rioja.
