San Francisco Bay Area Michelin Stars for 2015
Oct 23, 2014
When it comes to the Michelin Guide, 2015 is a good year for San Francisco. Two more restaurants were raised to three-star status, and no restaurant that was on the list last year lost a star.

But what does it all mean?
Here’s a breakdown of some of the major news from the Guide.
- There are now three-star restaurants in San Francisco proper. By elevating Benu and Saison, the city breaks wine country’s stranglehold on the Guide’s highest honor.
- Chez Panisse is still overlooked. Many expected Alice Waters’s iconic eatery to win back the star it lost in 2010, but it didn’t happen.
- No one lost a star. Not even Manresa, which closed due to a fire and isn’t set to reopen until next year. This might be a sign of Michelin’s optimistic outlook on the development of the Bay Area’s culinary scene.
