The rigorous selection involves extensive due diligence and numerous inspections of all potential outlets to be certain restaurants are worthy of the prestigious honor of receiving a one-, two-, or three-starred rating by Michelin. To ensure a consistent selection, the same five criteria are used for awarding stars in all countries: product quality, preparation and flavors, the cuisine's personality, and value for money and consistency. Based upon Michelin's ratings, two stars (**) denotes a restaurant featuring "excellent cooking, and worth a detour."
"All of us at Cyrus are extremely honored and proud to maintain our two-star rating," remarked Chef Douglas Keane of Cyrus. "It feels incredible to continue to be recognized for the quality that we strive to deliver to each and every one who dines at Cyrus."
