San Francisco Restaurants Are Seeing Stars. Michelin Stars, That Is.

The Michelin Guide San Francisco Bay Area & Wine Country Restaurants 2011 was released today, and while not everyone is happy about it, we’re here to herald the good news, starting with the fact that both The French Laundry and The Restaurant at Meadowood earned three stars.

Restaurants honored with a pair of stars are Coi, Cyrus, and Manresa.

One star has been awarded to restaurants including AcquerelloAmeAuberge de SoleilAzizaBouchonBoulevardChez TJCommisThe Dining Room at the Ritz Carlton, Domaine Chandon-étoile,  Farmhouse Inn & RestaurantFleur de LysLa FolieLa ToqueLuceMadrona ManorMasa’sMurray CircleOne Market, The Plumed HorseQuinceReddSantéSolbarTerraUbuntu, and The Village Pub, along with first-time one-star winners Alexander’s SteakhouseApplewood Inn,  Campton PlaceDio DekaFrancesSaison, and Spruce.
