Michelin will this week release the newest edition of the MICHELIN Guide Washington, D.C., for 2018, and they are adding two more star selections to the nation’s capital.
Michelin inspectors, who have been dining anonymously around Washington, D.C., for the last two years, have recognized Komi and Metier for the first time.
Komi, led by local chef Johnny Monis, earns its first star for a Mediterranean tasting menu that offers diners a variety of small bites, house-made pasta, and roasted meat, often goat.
Métier, owned by chef Eric Ziebold and partner Célia Laurent, features menu items that have been locally sourced and décor items from the owners’ personal collections.
Additionally, the 2018 MICHELIN Guide Washington, D.C., 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.
More than 33 styles of cuisines appear in the Guide. Diners can find recommendations for establishments with notable wine, beer, sake and cocktail lists, as well as menus on which average prices are $25 and under.
The 2018 selection includes:
- Three restaurants with two stars
- 11 restaurants with one star
- 22 restaurants with a Bib Gourmand
