I was there in December, and after enjoying a gourmet and upscale dining experience, I felt something was not right. Does it really deserve three stars? Back then we had a debate, my father in law and I about this iconic restaurant which probably fell in the routine of things. Today, the results are out.
local.fr: A restaurant that has held three Michelin stars for half a century was pushed down a rank Monday in one of the biggest shocks of the French culinary guide for 2019.
tellerreport: L'Auberge de L'Ill in Alsace, which for 51 years had three Michelin stars, lost its third star, said the co-manager of the restaurant and sister of the chef, Danielle Baumann Haeberlin. "It's sad for Alsace," she said. "It's a shock but we will continue," said Marc Haeberlin, the head of the Auberge de L'Ill, located in Illhaeusern, Haut-Rhin, interviewed by France 3 Alsace. Savoyard chef Marc Veyrat also lost his third star in the 2019 edition of the guide.
