Michelin revealed a list of 74 restaurants in the greater San Francisco area that received its highly regarded Bib Gourmand designation that represents eateries that offer excellent food at a reasonable price.
For 2016, Michelin included 12 new restaurants on the list, including Millennium Restaurant!
Bib Gourmand restaurants are selected by Michelin's famously anonymous food inspectors who choose quality restaurants that have menu items that offer two courses and a glass of wine or dessert for $40 or less (tax and gratuity not included). Most telling about these selections is the fact that these are the same restaurants that the Michelin food inspectors frequent themselves when off the clock.
The Bib Gourmands are selected by Michelin's inspectors who dine in anonymity at restaurants across the region. 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.
