Michelin 2015: The Twitter reaction

What better way to consider this year's new stars than via Twitter? The results themselves were announced this morning via the social networking site, on the new account @MichelinGuideUK.

Congratulations and reactions started pouring in from the moment the new names were released.

The London restaurants were immediately flooded with responses:

Fera at Claridge's
Although hardly a surprise, Simon Rogan's London outpost was thrilled with the news. Claridge's Twitter account itself congratulated the restaurant team, saying it was "proud":

@ClaridgesHotel: Congratulations @simon_rogan and wonderful team @FeraAtClaridges for their first #Michelin star #proud #perfectradish

While Fera's own account thanked everyone, before getting back to work…

@FeraAtClaridges: Thanks to every member of the Fera Team, @ClaridgesHotel and ALL who have supported us. Very, very happy and proud! Now for lunch service!

Fera's wild-inspired name even merited a lyrical tweet from Michelin itself:

@MichelinGuideUK: Wild thing, you made our heart sing. A #MichelinStar returns to Claridge's @FeraAtClaridges

City Social

Jason Atherton's Tower 42 restaurant congratulated its team:

"@CitySocial_T42: Amazing news to be awarded a Michelin star @MichelinGuideUK well done to all the team. @paulwalshchef @Andy_Downton @_JasonAtherton"

While Michelin itself suggested that Atherton's nose for recruiting serious talent had helped him win:

@MichelinGuideUK: Jason Atherton keeps recruiting serious talent. #Michelin Star for the high-rise @CitySocial_T42"

Kitchen Table at Bubbledogs

The Fitzrovia site, which is found behind the main Bubbledogs space, was proud and excited to have won:

@bubbledogsKT: We couldn't be prouder of our team and all of those who have supported us along the way. Thank you!

The Champagne and hotdog specialist has been commended on Twitter by the Michelin account itself:

@MichelinGuideUK : The second counter restaurant in London this year to get a #MichelinStar @bubbledogsKT

While chef James Knappett wrote:

@jamesknappett: We did it, so proud for the team! #michelin @ Bubbledogs Kitchen Table
