GREENVILLE, S.C., July 21, 2016 -- For locals and visitors seeking the culinary gems in some of America’s great food cities, the newly updated MICHELIN Restaurants U.S. app offers free mobile access to all the selections of the MICHELIN Guides for New York City, San Francisco, Chicago and soon Washington, D.C.
“The MICHELIN Restaurants U.S. app is a go-to mobile resource for diners, a trusted tool to explore each city’s rich culinary diversity, while discovering amazing hidden gems that our famously anonymous restaurant inspectors have carefully and methodically selected,” said Claire Dorland-Clauzel, vice president, brand and external relations for Michelin Group.
Available on iOS, selections are organized within the app by star-rating, neighborhood and price range. The app also features photos and other details, such as operating hours, pricing, contact information and links to maps and directions.
In the future customers will also have access to special offers for unique dining experiences and a reservation service through dedicated concierge support facilitated by Source, which specializes in servicing high-end lifestyle clients.
