Michelin star restaurants might be making their way to Atlanta... Well, some restaurants in Atlanta might be given the honor of receiving a Michelin star or two (or three, if they're absolutely exceptional), which is quite an honor for any restaurant to get.
Michael Ellis, the newest director of the Michelin Restaurant Guide, recently mentioned in an interview with Eater National that the revered guide to international dining excellence has Atlanta on its list of American cities they are looking to expand into.
While the Michelin star system gets its fair share of criticism, it remains a consistent measuring stick for fine dining. And, to date, no grading of the Atlanta dining scene has been conducted by Michelin.
This past week, I spent a few days in San Francisco, one of a handful of American cities currently rated by the Michelin guide.
