Michelin Round Up - Washington, DC

In 2017, Michelin first came to Washington, DC to rank restaurants for its prestigious list, and in 2018, each of the restaurants listed in the first DC red book received a follow-up visit from the tire company's anonymous team of inspectors.  DC remains the only U.S. city Michelin rates that doesn’t have a three star restaurant. Both New York and San Francisco have six restaurants apiece with three stars, while Chicago has two. There are only about 100 restaurants worldwide with three stars.  Maybe one day... Keith and I have been fortunate enough to have dined at all listed so far on the DC list.  Find our round up below.
