Greenville, S.C., Aug. 13, 2018 — Michelin has announced the release dates for the newest editions of its annual restaurant selections in the United States. Full listings for the new restaurant selections will be published on www.michelinmedia.com according to the schedule included below. The 2019 U.S. editions of the MICHELIN® Guide will go on sale at local retailers following the announcements, as well as Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.
As an international mobility company, Michelin published its first “Red Guide” in the U.S. in 2005 with the New York City edition. The four MICHELIN Guides for the U.S. highlight several of the largest and most-visited U.S. cities – New York, D.C., San Francisco and Chicago.
Recognized globally for excellence and quality, the MICHELIN Guide offers a selection of the best restaurants in each category of comfort and price. The famous one, two and three stars identify establishments serving the highest quality cuisine. Bib Gourmands feature designations given to select restaurants that offer great food for good value, often known as personal favorites among the inspectors when dining on their own time. As the newest symbol introduced in 2017, L’Assiette Michelin or the Michelin Plate, recognizes establishments that provide a good meal that is capably prepared with fresh ingredients.
The MICHELIN Guide remains a reliable companion for any traveler seeking a great meal. The guides were first published in France more than 100 years ago, in the early days of auto and leisure travel. 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 in more than 30 countries around the world.
