Michelin Guide Announces Bib Gourmand Picks for 2012

New, 10 comments

On October 4, the Michelin Guide will announce which restaurants made their 2012 guide, revealing which restaurants were promoted, demoted, and removed entirely. The guide always offers a few surprises and head scratchers, gives chefs another excuse to party, and inevitably leads to a debate about how influential the guide really is in the States.

Anyway. Today the folks at Michelin announce the inclusions in the far less exclusive and noteworthy category of Bib Gourmand. These are restaurants the guide highlights for excellence on a budget (defined as two courses and wine or dessert for $40 a head), including Frankies, Do or Dine, the somewhat exclusive Japanese restaurant Bohemian, Rubirosa, and Vinegar Hill House. This year, there are 114 inclusions, all listed below.
