Michelin Anoints 2011 'Bib Gourmand' Restaurants
We weren't particularly thrilled with the 2010 Michelin Guide, so we can't say we've been eagerly anticipating next Wednesday's publication of the 2011 edition. But Michelin is betting that plenty of other people are, and to get them frothing at the mouth has just released its 2011 'Bib Gourmand' roster. While the designation conjures images of drooling babies gumming wood-fired pizza crusts, the term refers to restaurants that aren't deemed worthy of stars but are places where diners can consume two courses and a glass of wine for less than $40. There are 91 restaurants on the list, including such new additions as Northern Spy Food Co. and Tanoreen. The full round-up of infantalized Michelin picks follows after the jump.
