- A roadside cafe in France was inundated with customers after it was confused with an upscale restaurant and accidentally awarded a Michelin star!
- Le Bouche à Oreille (which means word of mouth) in Bourges central France, was included on a map of starred restaurants published by Michelin on February 9.
- The cafe is a lunch only bistro serviced by a part-time chef and the owner, Véronique Jacquet who runs between the bar and tables, with meals (including a jug of wine!) costing about €12.50.
- However, the star was meant to go an upscale restaurant of the same name in Boutervilliers, southwest of Paris, with the streets being similarly named as well!
- The error has been taken in good spirits, with the restaurant owners inviting each other over to try their specialties
