"Michelin Guide Shanghai 2017" will be published this fall, and it will be Michelin's first guide on the Chinese mainland.
This edition only features restaurants in the city. As a world-renowned benchmark for the food and beverage industry, some local consumers say they are interested in which restaurants will make the grade.
There is a cultural difference. Western restaurants are the individual chef that would have the reputation of gaining Michelin award. While in China it is the name of the restaurant and the owner of the restaurant that is more important. Michelin Guide's arrival will create a few celebrity chefs.
