Michelin Reveals Bay Area's 2016 Bib Gourmands Ahead of Michelin Guide Debut

Michelin designation represents quality dining at a good value

SAN FRANCISCO (Oct. 15, 2015) – Michelin revealed a list of 74 restaurants in the greater San Francisco area that received its highly regarded Bib Gourmand designation that represents eateries that offer excellent food at a reasonable price. 

For 2016, Michelin included 12 new restaurants on the list, including locations in the South Bay, East Bay, Marin and Peninsula.

Bib Gourmand restaurants are selected by Michelin’s famously anonymous food inspectors who choose quality restaurants that have menu items that offer two courses and a glass of wine or dessert for $40 or less (tax and gratuity not included). Most telling about these selections is the fact that these are the same restaurants that the Michelin food inspectors frequent themselves when off the clock.

Michelin released the list of these more affordable fine-dining Bib Gourmand locations exactly one week prior to the market debut of the MICHELIN Guide San Francisco Bay Area & Wine Country 2016. This will mark the 10th edition of this famous dining guide for the city and surrounding urban area. 

This year’s list of 74 establishments stretch across a sizable geographic area and include these new comers: Diavola (Sonoma County),  Farmhouse Kitchen Thai (Mission), Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch (Napa Valley), Izakaya Rintaro (Mission), La Perla (Sonoma County), Millennium (East Bay), Orchard City Kitchen (South Bay), Poggio (Marin), Ramen Gaijin (Sonoma County), Trestle (Financial District) wonderful (Peninsula) and Zola (South Bay) .

As stated, the Bib Gourmands are selected by Michelin’s inspectors who dine in anonymity at restaurants across the region. 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.
