Michelin Guide Wed Nov 09 2011

Chicago's Got Some New Bibs

Bib-Gourmand.jpgThis morning Michelin announced its list of Bib Gourmand restaurants in the 2012 Michelin Guide Chicago. Bib Gourmand, if you recall, is a designation slightly below a star, indicating a restaurant is "an inspector's favorite for good value," where two courses and a glass of wine or dessert can be had for $40 or less. Seventeen new restaurants made the list, while six were dropped -- in most cases because they closed. The new restaurants are:

Arami
Avec
Bistronomic
Fogon
Gemini Bistro
GT Fish & Oyster
Jin Thai
Kabul House (Skokie)
Lao Sze Chuan
Maude's Liquor Bar
Mundial Cocina Mestiza
Owen & Engine
Perennial Virant
Sen (Oak Park)
Sol de Mexico
Xni-Pec de Yucutan (Brookfield)
Yolo (Skokie)

Former awardees Bistro 110, Kith & Kin, mado, Otom and Veerasway all closed within the past year, while Perennial has transformed into Perennial Virant, which made the list. The only outright drop was Frances' Deli, a Lincoln Park institution opened in 1938.

The full list of Bib Gourmand restaurants is below. The star announcement will be next Tuesday, Nov. 15, with the guide on sale Nov. 16.
