    So another Michelin Guide announcement ceremony has come and gone. And it's clear that the huge news is that the UK (and London) has a new three star restaurant. It's been seven years since we last got one when Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester was awarded the full complement. But now The Araki in Mayfair has joined that rareified group.

    The awards turned properly emotional when
