California's New Michelin Guide Additions

California's food scene has received a notable update with the addition of several new restaurants to the Michelin Guide.  This globally recognized dining guide grants its prestigious ratings to exceptional restaurants. Originally a travel guide to encourage road trips, it evolved to serve as the benchmark for excellence in dining. A Michelin star is coveted by many chefs and restaurateurs, but awarded to only a handful of exceptional establishments each year.

To be featured in the guide, a restaurant must undergo rigorous evaluation by anonymous Michelin inspectors who assess the establishment based on five key criteria:

  • quality of the ingredients
  • mastery of flavor and cooking techniques
  • the personality of the chef as expressed in the cuisine
  • consistency both over time and across the entire menu
  • value for money

From mouthwatering street food to elevated cuisines from across the globe, some Californian restaurants have already received a rating in 2024. Check out California’s 15 newest restaurant additions to the Michelin Guide!
