Mark Your Calendars, Michelin Guide Season is Almost Here


GREENVILLE, S.C., Aug, 16, 2017 — Michelin has announced the release dates for

the newest editions of its annual restaurant selections. Full listings for the new restaurant selections will be published on according to the schedule included below. The 2018 U.S. editions of the MICHELIN Guide will go on sale at local retailers shortly after the announcements, as well as and Barnes and Noble.


For the 2018 editions of the MICHELIN Guides, readers will observe a new symbol: L’Assiette Michelin or the Michelin Plate. This symbol joins the coveted Michelin Star and Bib Gourmand as recognizing restaurants where the inspectors have discovered quality food. The stars and Bib Gourmands often garner the most attention, but each restaurant that is included in the guide has been evaluated by a famed inspector and subsequent inclusion in the guide, now marked by the new symbol, endorses restaurants that guarantee a very good standard of a food and wine experience.


The Company, which began manufacturing tires in 1889 and developing  travel guides in 1900, published its first “red guide” in the United States in 2005 with the New York City edition. Four American cities now feature dedicated dining guides, with Washington, D.C., the newest guide, joining the collection in 2016.


The MICHELIN Guide results — determined through a highly confidential and meticulous evaluation process by a team of anonymous food inspectors — draw excitement, speculation and conjecture every year. The Bib Gourmands, which are announced one week prior to the starred-selections, feature designations given to select restaurants that offer great food for good value, often known as personal favorites among the inspectors.


The MICHELIN Guide remains to this day a reliable companion for any traveler looking to discover a great meal. The guides were first published in France at the turn of the century, when automobile traffic and leisure travel pursuits were uncommon. Michelin’s inspectors still use the same criteria and manner of selection that were used by inspectors in the very beginning, now applied to guides that are produced in more than 28 countries around the world.




About the MICHELIN Guide

Thanks to the rigorous MICHELIN Guide selection process that is applied independently and consistently around 28 countries, the MICHELIN Guide has become an international benchmark in fine dining. The selections of all restaurants in the guide are made by Michelin's anonymous inspectors, who are trained to 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, and only the quality of the cuisine is evaluated. To fully assess the quality of a restaurant, the inspectors apply five criteria defined by Michelin: product quality; preparation and flavors; the chef's personality as revealed through his or her cuisine; value for money; and consistency over time and across the entire menu. These objective guarantees a consistent selection so that a star restaurant as the same value regardless of whether it is located in Paris, New York or Tokyo.
