Michelin Highlights Top Restaurants for Good Value in Chicago

List of Bib Gourmand restaurants welcomes 10 newcomers

CHICAGO, Oct. 22, 2015 Michelin today announced the restaurants in Chicago that have earned the designation of Bib Gourmand in the 6th edition of the MICHELIN Guide for the Windy City.

The 2016 Guide features 24 different types of cuisine and with its many distinct neighborhoods. Chicago continues to offer a variety of very good dining options from the South Shore of Lake Michigan to the exciting international eats of Pilsen.

Michelin’s Bib Gourmands are selected by the company’s esteemed and anonymous food inspectors and represent restaurants that serve two courses and a glass of wine or dessert for $40 or less (tax and gratuity not included). Most important, they are the restaurants that the Michelin inspectors frequent themselves.

Joining the list are several new restaurants in Andersonville, Edgewater and Upton such as the Vietnamese family-owned Angry Crab and Sabri Nihari and Luella’s Southern Kitchen. Additionally, spots like MingHin and Via Lima have caught the inspectors’ attention and have quickly become favorites for their unique and authentic Chinese and Peruvian cuisine, respectively. Rounding out the list of new Bib Gourmands are: Bohemian House, Dove’s Luncheonette, Duck Inn (The), mfk and Yusho.

While the famous Michelin stars remain the most celebrated international distinction in the MICHELIN Guide, the Bib Gourmand is a highly desired honor among restaurateurs and one that is recognized by the many people who covet quality food at a reasonable price.

 Michelin’s anonymous inspectors regularly dine across the city of Chicago, as well as in the surrounding suburbs to make their choices for the Bib Gourmands and the other restaurant selections in the MICHELIN Guide Chicago 2016. These local inspectors are trained to scrupulously apply the same time-tested methods used by Michelin inspectors for many decades throughout the world. This ensures a uniform, international standard of excellence. As a further guarantee of complete objectivity, Michelin inspectors pay all their bills in full.
