Drumroll please. The MICHELIN Guide Washington, D.C. 2018, was released earlier this week. Michelin inspectors, who have been dining anonymously around Washington, D.C., for the last two years, have recognized a variety or restaurants, cuisines and styles. Notably, Komi and Metier each got a star for the first time. Both restaurants were of great interest to the inspection team in the inaugural edition of the Guide last year. The restaurants chefs Patrick O’Connell (Inn at Little Washington), José Andrés (minibar) and Aaron Silverman (Pineapple and Pearls) have maintained their two-star status in the second edition. The two-star distinction recognizes restaurants that signify to travelers a destination that is worth a detour. Also all nine restaurants who received a one star in 2017 maintained their one-star status.  The 2018 Bib Gourmands were announced last week for D.C. The Bib Gourmands are awarded to restaurants that earn the attention of Michelin inspectors and are personal favorites, offering great quality food at good prices.Additionally, the guide recognizes more than 70 restaurants with the Plate symbol, a designation given to restaurants that inspectors recognize as having potential and are recommended to travelers and locals for quality food.
