Dine and Dish: Bay Area Michelin Stars

Bay Area

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Where else can you find such a concentration of super star restaurants? Michelin Guide agrees — food is really really good in the Bay Area.

The 2019 list is out and no other part of the country has a bigger constellation of three-star spots.

That’s as high as you can get.

In fact, there are only 120 restaurants in the world with a 3-star.

In our backyard, the Restaurant at Meadowood with Chef Chris Kostow, Thomas Keller’s French Laundry, Single Thread, Quince, and Manresa, Atelier Crenn, and Benu. Prepare to shell out for a meal there.

Next down the list, 2-star restaurants: Californios, another favorite of Dine and Dish, Acquerello, Baume, Commis, Lazy Bear, Saison and Coi. Campton Place is the newcomer here.

The 1-star restaurants that made the grade: the hot new angler picked up a Michelin star.

Also there’s Michael Mina, Mister Jiu’s, Nico and State Bird Provision to name just a few we’ve sampled at Dine and Dish.

One star means “high quality cooking, worth a stop;” two stars indicates “excellent cooking, worth a detour;” three stars signifies “exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey.”
