Another week, another release of a local dining guide.
Following the announcement of the latest Zagat Guide for the Bay Area, today saw the release of the 2010 Michelin Guide for Bay Area and Wine Country restaurants.
As usual, we’ve got the rundown on how the Napa Valley fared this time around…
For background, the Michelin Guide rates restaurants by giving them stars. Here’s a quick refresher on what the star ratings mean:
- Three stars: “Exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey.”
- Two stars: “Excellent cuisine, worth a detour.”
- One star: “Very good cuisine in its category.”
Here’s how Napa Valley’s finest stacked-up:
The Restaurant at Meadowood
The French Laundry (for the fourth consecutive year remained the only restaurant to receive three-stars)
