GGRAsia – Macau Casino Sector Loses More Michelin Stars
Macau’s casino sector loses more Michelin stars
Macau has three fewer Michelin-starred restaurants in the latest edition of the Michelin Guide Hong Kong Macau, compared to 2021. Macau’s starred restaurants this year – announced on Wednesday – are all in casinos. This is the second year in a row that the number of Michelin-starred outlets in Macau has decreased.
The number of two-star restaurants in 2022 has decreased by one, meaning there are now five.
The total of one-star restaurants has decreased by two, so there are now seven such establishments.
Golden Flower (pictured), a Chinese restaurant in Wynn Macau Casino run by Wynn Macau Ltd – and which was listed as a two-star establishment last year – is still recommended in the guide, but no longer has any stars
Tim’s Kitchen, which had a star last year and was located at SJM Holdings’ Hotel Lisboa on the Macau Peninsula, is now closed and no longer listed on the hotel’s website.
The other 2021 one-star restaurant now entirely excluded from the list is The Golden Peacock, an Indian cuisine restaurant at Sands China Ltd’s Venetian Macao casino in Cotai. According to the latter’s website, the restaurant is “closed until further notice”.
For the Michelin Guide Hong Kong Macau 2022, Macau’s three-star restaurants are: Jade Dragon at City of Dreams, a property of Melco Resorts and Entertainment Ltd; and Robuchon at Dôme and The Eight, both at Grand Lisboa, an SJM Holdings resort.
Macau’s two-star restaurants for 2022 are: Alain Ducasse at Morpheus, City of Dreams; Feng Wei Ju at StarWorld Hotel, a property of Galaxy Entertainment Group Ltd; Mizumi and Wing Lei, both at Wynn Macau; and Sichuan Moon at Wynn Palace, Cotai’s sister property.
