Michelin Guide Announces New Stars for California Restaurants

© Patricia Chang

It’s been two years and one global health crisis, but restaurants are finally returning, and with them awards, including the finest, fanciest, or maybe just Frenchiest of them all: Michelin stars. Michelin has finally updated its California guide and announced the newest additions on Tuesday, awarding five new two-star restaurants and 22 new one-star restaurants across the state — with both of those double star spots and nine of the single star restaurants local to the San Francisco Bay Area.

The last round of stars were awarded in 2019, when Michelin expanded beyond San Francisco and wine country and debuted its first complete guide to California. Regardless, the Bay Area remained the most decorated destination for fine dining, with both the highest number of starred restaurants in the state and the greatest concentration of three-starred restaurants. The full 2021 guide is now live, including existing restaurants that stayed on or been bumped off, so explore the full guide on the Michelin website.

Three stars: No new restaurants have been awarded three stars this year.

Two stars: Birdsong and Harbor House have earned second stars for the first time this year.

One star: The new Marlena and fan favorite the Shota have snagged a single star for the first time this year, and Adega regained a star after a few years off the list, among others.

Bib Gourmands: In the more informal and affordable category, in addition to the new Bib Gourmands that were announced last week, the full list of Bib Gourmands has been confirmed, including all those restaurants that held onto their bibs from two years ago.

Congratulations to the newest additions to the Michelin stars, below. For the guide’s full descriptions and explanations, click through to the Michelin site.
