It’s Official…

Lazy Bear has earned a Michelin star for 2016! It’s almost surreal that everyone’s work and dedication has been recognized by the Michelin Guide. As chefs and cooks, we work crazy long hours, sacrificing our personal lives so to be acknowledged for all our hard work is truly an honor.

A few noteworthy things about San Francisco Bay Area’s Michelin Guide for 2016:

  • Manresa moves from two stars to three stars.
  • Commis and Campton Place move from one star to two stars.
  • New one star restaurants include All Spice (SF location), Al’s Place, Aster, Californios, Commonwealth, Kin KhaoLazy Bear, Lord Stanley, Mourad, Nico, Octavia, Omakase, RasaSushi Yoshizumi, and Wako.
  • Boulevard (read my review here), La Folie (read my review here), and Maruya lose their one star.

Here is the complete San Francisco Bay Area Michelin Guide for 2016:

Three Stars

Benu, San Francisco
The French Laundry, Yountville
Manresa, Los Gatos
The Restaurant at Meadowood, St. Helena
Saison, San Francisco (read my review here)

I’ve dined at The French Laundry over 20 years ago (I was 5 years old) when the tasting menu was a mere $45/person!

Two Stars

Acquerello, San Francisco (read my review here)
Atelier Crenn, San Francisco (read my review here)
Baumé, South Bay
Campton Place, San Francisco
Coi, San Francisco
Commis, East Bay (read my review here)

I’ve dined at Coi but five years ago so I’m sure the style of food has changed quite a bit since then.
