So here's the big news. Michelin's first West coast guide and the second in the United States will be released in October of this year. The Guide will cover hotels and restaurants in San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose and Berkeley, as well as the Wine Country including Napa and Sonoma. Voila!
“The Bay Area’s food-conscious residents value innovative cuisine and are passionate about using fresh ingredients, including some of the country’s highest quality organic ingredients that are produced here,” said Jean-Luc Naret, worldwide director of the Michelin Guide. “We are eagerly anticipating the Michelin Guide’s entry into this wonderful city known for its cuisine, culture, beauty and innovative spirit.”
