OMG, the 2013 San Francisco MICHELIN Guide is Here, Almost! A List of Bib Gourmand (Good Value) Winners

“Michelin Reveals Bay Area’s 2013 Bib Gourmands Ahead Of MICHELIN Guide Debut -┬áSeventy Restaurants Make Famous List for Quality Food at a Good Value

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 17, 2012 — Michelin revealed its coveted list of Bib Gourmand restaurants in the greater San Francisco area, exactly one week prior to the release of the highly anticipated MICHELIN Guide San Francisco 2013.

This year 70 establishments made the list–a list that represents a sizable geographic area, including the entire Bay Area and Wine Country.

The 2013 Bib Gourmands were selected by Michelin’s esteemed and anonymous food inspectors and they represent restaurants that serve two courses and a glass of wine or dessert for $40 or less (tax and gratuity not included). Most importantly, they are the restaurants that the company’s inspectors frequent themselves.

While the famous Michelin stars remain the most celebrated international distinction in the MICHELIN Guide, the Bib Gourmand is also a highly desired distinction among restaurateurs. In the 2013 edition, 21 different types of cuisine are represented among the Bib Gourmands and include restaurants across the region, including San Francisco, East Bay, Wine Country, Marin, South Bay and the Peninsula.

The Bib Gourmands are selected by Michelin’s famously anonymous inspectors who dine across the area regularly. 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.
