Michelin Stars

          The Michelin (Red) Guide is the world's oldest and most prestigious restaurant guide. To be awarded one Michelin star is no easy feat, and there are fewer than one hundred three star restaurants in the world. The guide originated in and focuses on Europe, and currently only three US cities are even ranked: New York, Chicago, and San Francisco (in the past Las Vegas and Las Angeles were also included).

         My goal is to try every Michelin starred restaurant in the US. This list will help track my progress and monitor changes in the rankings from year to year. I started this journey in late 2008, and in three years managed to knock most of the three stars off of the list. In 2011 I purchased my first home, which meant I had to take a break from traveling and lavish dinners. I'm hoping to start back up again and share my experiences now that I have this blog up and running!

My current Michelin star count is 36 out of 166.
