Michelin today released the list of 22 Bib Gourmand restaurants in Washington, D.C., one week ahead of its 2018 star selections.
The MICHELIN Guide, renowned for its anonymous team of food inspectors, added the U.S. capital to its published list of guides last year. The team of dining critics has been eating around the Potomac, anonymously observing the quality of ingredients, creativity of the chefs and paying in full for their meals for two years now.
“Our inspectors had another exciting year working on the Bib Gourmand selection in D.C., and we are thrilled to find more, showing just how rich and varied the cooking scene has become in Washington.” said Michael Ellis, international director of the MICHELIN Guide.
Introduced in 1955, Bib Gourmand restaurants are selected by Michelin’s inspectors because they serve high quality food while making it possible to order two courses and a glass of wine or dessert for $40 or less (tax and gratuity not included).
