On Thursday, May 18, 2023, The Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau hosted a press conference aboard the Moshulu at Penn’s Landing to announce Philadelphia as one of eight destinations in the United States with its own Michelin Green Guide. The Michelin Green Guide explores the notable attractions, restaurants, hotels, and experiences in Philadelphia and The Countryside of Philadelphia.

Phillippe Orain, Editor-in-chief, Michelin Editions, traveled from France to introduce the book and explain why Michelin chose Philadelphia. During his speech, he awarded honors to local entities which received the book’s highest rating, including: Independence National Historical Park, the Barnes Foundation, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Liberty Bell, the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, the Nemours Estate, and Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library. Orain also presented special awards to Jane Golden, Mural Arts Philadelphia; Fareed Simpson, local musician; Michael Solomonov, restauranteur; and Yannick Nézet-Séguin, the Philadelphia Orchestra music director.
