This means that Sacramento restaurants will be up for consideration for Michelin stars.
Michelin stars are coveted by restaurants across the world. A one-star rating means a place is a “very good restaurant,” while a two-star rating means the place is “worth a detour.” The highest rating, three stars, means the spot is “worth a special journey.”
Restaurants in Healdsburg, Los Gatos, San Francisco, St. Helena and Yountville have been awarded three Michelin stars.
Being awarded a star is considered on the highest honors in the restaurant world, but the guide does have its detractors. Los Angeles was under consideration for the guide’s 2008-2009 edition, but much to many chefs’ frustrations no restaurants were awarded three stars.MORE NEWS: Stimulus Check Update: Will You Get A Fourth Relief Payment?
