SF Bay Area Michelin Stars 2015

SF Bay Area Michelin Stars 2015

Foodies rejoice! Last week the Michelin Guide announced their star recipients for the SF Bay Area. Is anyone as excited as I am? Just me?


into the vegetable garden – Manresa

Some exciting updates (or just updates if the Michelin Guide doesn’t excite you):

– Benu and Saison in San Francisco were both elevated to three stars. These are the City’s first three star awards! The other “local” three star spots are The French Laundry (Yountville) and The Restaurant at Meadowood (St. Helena)

– Two new restaurants received their first star this year – Kusakabe and Maruya. Both sushi restaurants, and both in San Francisco.

– Manresa hung onto its two stars despite the fire in July that put it out of commission. (Really happy for them, since we loved it there.)

– Acquerello received two stars this year, up from one last year. This makes two female chefs in the two star category – Suzette Gresham of Acquerello and Dominique Crenn of Atelier Crenn.

sunchokes with red flame grapes, hazelnut and douglas fir milk – Commis
