Tokyo 'top city for good eating'

Tokyo 'top city for good eating'

The home of haute cuisine just got taken down a peg with an authoritative judgment that Paris is not the world's top city for good eating.

That distinction now goes to Tokyo, according to the bible for foodies everywhere, the Michelin guide.

In its first ever edition devoted to an Asian city, it awarded restaurants in Tokyo a total of 191 stars.

That was nearly twice as many as Paris can boast, and more than three times New York's total.

Eight of Tokyo's restaurants won the maximum three stars - only two fewer than Paris itself. Another 25 got two stars and 117 one star.

To add to Paris's embarrassment, three of the top eight restaurants in Tokyo serve French food. Three more offer traditional Japanese fine dining, and the other two are sushi houses.

"Tokyo is becoming the global city with the finest cuisine, the city in the world with the most stars," said Michelin guide director Jean-Luc Naret.

Michelin's plans to assess Tokyo restaurants had caused controversy in Japan, where some commentators had doubted whether it would be up to the job.

I believe it. I love sushi. I could eat my way through Japan, screw my way through Thailand, and sleep my way home.

Were those Tokyo restaurants rated by consumers or food critics?

Critics tend to be in their own zone.

I've noticed that movie critics for instance, tend to almost always rate a movie favorably that has a sad ending, or where the bad guys win, or is slow and boring.
