The Michelin guide, the so-called oracle of gastronomy revealed its new stars for 2014 on Monday. In total 64 restaurants across France picked up a star in the 2014 guide. Here's the complete list to see if there is one worth checking out near you. Let us know what it was like.

The Michelin guide has been handing out its coveted stars since 1926, when anonymous judges first started reviewing restaurants by means of its famous, yet often criticised three star system. This year the directors of the guide were accused of "losing the plot".

The reviewers have to judge restaurants solely on the quality of the food rather than service, with the condition for being awarded three stars being the grub must be of an “exceptional quality and be worth the journey”.

Michelin releases its guide on an annual basis with various new restaurants picking up stars and others adding an extra one to boost their reputation. 

For 2014 there were 57 new restaurants that picked up a star, six who were awarded two stars and just one who made it into the elite three star club in France, which now boasts 27 diners.

However that still puts it behind Japan which has 28 three star Michelin restaurants.

While the Michelin star has become a global mark of distinction in fine dining, it's focus has remained primarily in France. In 2012 French restaurants held a total of 594 stars which is double its closest competitors. 

The difference is explained primarily by the number of establishments reviewed, with France being the target of double or triple the reviews of any other place.
The top quality diners that picked up a star this week are located all over France so to help you find out if there is one near you worth checking out, here is the complete list of those restaurants.
