Michelin Travel Guide to review DC restaurants

D.C. is becoming only the fourth city in the U.S. to have its restaurants rated by the prestigious Michelin Travel Guide.

An official announcement was made Tuesday at the National Press Club.

D.C. will join New York, San Francisco and Chicago as the only cities in the country to be the subject of a Michelin Travel Guide which will give star ratings to its eateries.

The travel guide ranks restaurants with one, two, or three stars. It also gives a 'Bib Gourmand' rating to exceptional restaurants with affordable prices.

Michelin will soon be dispatching secret restaurant reviewers to District eateries. The new travel guide will go on sale in October.
