LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Las Vegas restaurant Joel Robuchon earned a coveted three stars as French gastronomic bible Michelin unveiled its first-ever editions covering the famous gambling capital and Los Angeles on Friday.

Michelin had been due to launch its guides for Las Vegas and Los Angeles on Monday but announced its list of top restaurants after inadvertently publishing the results on the company website, reports said.

"It was a mistake," Christian Delhaye, worldwide head of maps and guides for Michelin, said of the blunder in comments to the the Los Angeles Times."It was only up for a short time," he added.

The two guides detail around 390 restaurants in the cities, with Robuchon's fine-dining establishment at Las Vegas' MGM Grand topping the list with three stars, the ultimate accolade which denotes a restaurant with "exceptional cuisine" that is "worth a journey."

Six restaurants -- including celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck's Beverly Hills restaurant "Spago" that is beloved of movie stars and Hollywood power-brokers -- earned two stars, three in Los Angeles, three in Las Vegas.

A total of 27 restaurants in the two cities earned one star.
