Wink Wink to the 2010 San Francisco Michelin Guide

The annual Michelin Guide release for the San Francisco Bay Area always creates a stir.  For those of you who know me know that I love good food.  Good food, good wine, good company.  (And good food doesn’t always mean a 4 course meal at a 4 star restaurant- I am just as happy eating a burger at Big Al’s in El Cerrito) 

That being said, I was thrilled to see this years list.  (N) means newly starred.

Three Michelin stars mean exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey.  One always eats here extremely well, sometimes superbly. Distinctive dishes are precisely executed, using superlative ingredients.

The French Laundry

mean excellent cuisine, worth a detour.  Skillfully and carefully crafted dishes of outstanding quality.

Two Michelin stars

The restaurant at Meadowood

One Michelin star
means a very good restaurant in its category.  A place offering cuisine prepared to a consistently high standard.
