Five Atlanta restaurants have achieved the coveted Michelin Guide star rating. 

The Michelin ceremony took place Oct. 24 at the Rialto Center for the Arts at Georgia State University. The restaurants that achieved one-star recognition were Atlas, Bacchanalia, Hayakawa, Lazy Betty, and Mujō.

“We are proud of the recognition the Michelin Guide will bring to our destination as it highlights our local chefs and cuisines,” said Andrew Wilson, executive vice president and chief marketing officer of the Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau. “While many restaurants will be recognized here tonight, we know the Michelin distinction will elevate our entire culinary community.”
