michelin guide. . . for the last time

by brendan on October 9, 2006

people are still talking about the michelin guide here in san francisco, many articles in the paper, some spirited on-line discussions (including one at e-gullet that i’ve been posting to here and again), and fervent dinner table discussions, including in my kitchen last night, where we dined on beef cheeks braised in san marzano tomatoes (that’s fodder for another post). the verdict: everyone disagrees on everything. no shocker there, but the one thing we all agree on is that we love good food, no matter where it comes from. so, it seemed fitting that i should end my commentary (for now at least) on the san francisco michelin ratings with a quote from leah garchick from her column in today’s sf chronicle:

“Michelin director Jean-Luc Naret participated in two events Wednesday promoting the new guide: one early in the day at Book Passage in the Ferry Building and one later at Williams-Sonoma. His lunch was at the Slanted Door, and dinner was at B44 (Patty Unterman says a plan to go to the Hayes Street Grill was thwarted by the rain). None of the restaurants received any stars.”

you see, the stars really don’t matter!
