All the young stars awarded on Monday morning at Teatro Manzoni in Milan, on the occasion of the presentation of the Guida ai Ristoranti di Identità Golose 2023, now online
Monday 27 March 2023: the 16th edition of the Guida ai Ristoranti d’Italia, Europa e del mondo di Identità Golose , the eighth entirely online, free and available to all.
At the time of writing, there are 1,196 restaurants reviewed, more than any other edition. The balance between new entries and restaurants no longer included is a hundred more than a year ago, but there are far more, 244 establishments that were not in the guide last year.
Of this year’s 1,196 establishments, 968 are Italian and 228 from 42 countries in Europe and elsewhere, from Austria to South Africa, from Norway to Colombia. There are 105 pizzerias, i.e. almost one in 10 in the overall total, a percentage that once again proves the vitality of the phenomenon.
Cocktail bars, last year's novelty, are now 35. This year’s absolute novelty is the ice cream parlours, all curated by Silvia Cittadini: we start with 12 reviews from 3 countries (including France and England). The ‘new ice cream’ phenomenon is growing too fast not to start accounting for it.
On the other hand, there are 512 establishments run by chefs under the age of 30 or 40, just under half of the total number of reviews, a result we value highly.
On Monday morning, at Teatro Manzoni in Milan, we awarded 22 prizes to the Young Stars 2023, 'young' because, as per tradition, they are all under 40. Here are the details of all the awardees:
