The Michelin Red Guides and the Gault Millau Guides have become widely known as the world’s most respected sources of restaurant and hotel evaluations.
But from a vegetarian or especially vegan point of view the problem is that the Michelin Guides and the Gault Millau like other classic restaurant guides are "totally meat obsessed".
But slowly things are changing - see especially USA - in Berlin the Cookies Cream is the first German veg restaurant recommended in Gault Millau Also it is recommended together with La Mano Verde in Der Feinschmecker Restaurant Guide.
