See who wins in the 2016 Michelin Star San Francisco Bay Area announcements

The Big News for Wine Country restaurant star-seekers in the 2016 Michelin Star San Francisco Bay Area announcements: You’re safe.

Though there’s plenty of drama in SF and the Peninsula, Wine Country didn’t see a single addition or loss of stars this year.

Maintaining their MICHELIN THREE STARS in Wine Country: French Laundry and The Restaurant at Meadowood. The big news down south is the Chef David Kinch of Manresa has finally gotten his third star. A major fire shut the restaurant down for a time in 2014 (although he got two stars for the 2015 guide).

There are no MICHELIN TWO STAR restaurants in Wine Country

Keeping their MICHELIN ONE STAR status are: Auberge du Soleil, St. Helena; Bouchon, Yountville; Farmhouse Inn & Restaurant, Forestville; La Toque, Napa; Madrona Manor, Healdsburg; Solbar Wine, Calistoga; Terrapin Creek, Bodega Bay; Terra, St. Helena.

  1. The French Laundry is the name of the restaurant. Reminds me of French people doing laundry by the river with their laundry scrub boards and light brown hard milled soap bars. Splendid imagery for a restaurant. They say the 3 stars go for the prices, not so much the food served. Giving away 3 stars to some restaurant establishments is similar to Arafat or Nobama obtaining the Nobel Peace Price. What difference, at this time, does it make — to obtain such awards.
