Famous sushi restaurant loses all Michelin stars

The world's best sushi restaurant, Sukiyabashi Jiro, loses its three Michelin stars. The decision was announced yesterday in the Japanese capital, Tokyo, where the restaurant is located. The loss of the stars has nothing to do with the quality of the food.

The restaurant is too exclusive, so no longer intended for the public, said a spokeswoman for the Michelin Guide. “We learned that Sukiyabashi Jiro is no longer taking reservations from the public. As a result, the restaurant no longer complies with our regulations. "

If you want to be in the Michelin Guide, you have to be accessible, said the spokeswoman. The three-star Sushi Saito restaurant has been removed from the restaurant guide for the same reasons.

Ten seats for exclusivity

Sukiyabashi Jiro is a famous restaurant where, among others, Barack Obama had dinner with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in 2014. The Shushi restaurant has had three Michelin stars since 2007. The restaurant is run by sushi master Jiro Ono, who was able to increase his profile thanks to the Netflix documentary "Jiro Dreams of Sushi".

According to the Guardian, the menu costs at least 40,000 yen (about 333 euros). Ideally, you should be one of the regulars, have special connections - or book through the concierge of a luxury hotel. The restaurant has only ten seats.
