Our very own Taqueria Habanero Recognized with the Bib Gourmand designation!



Michelin inspectors reveal 44 affordable favorites in fourth edition
of The MICHELIN Guide Washington, D.C.

WASHINGTON, D.C., Sept. 24, 2019 — Michelin today released its list of 44 restaurants in Washington, D.C., that earned the Bib Gourmand distinction, featuring 10 new additions.


Michelin’s anonymous inspectors have been dining around the District for four years now and, while the famous Michelin stars remain the most celebrated international distinction in the MICHELIN Guide, the Bib Gourmand is a highly desired honor among restaurateurs. The Bib Gourmand designation is recognized by travelers as an affordable and remarkable dining experience.


Introduced in 1997, Bib Gourmand restaurants are awarded by Michelin inspectors to establishments that serve good quality food at a good value, often described as “personal favorites” of Michelin inspectors when dining on their own time. Bib Gourmand restaurants offer a full menu of a starter, main course and dessert, making it possible to order two courses and a glass of wine or dessert for around $40 or less (tax and gratuity not included).


Thirty-six cuisine types will appear in the 2020 MICHELIN Guide Washington, D.C., reflecting the diversity of cuisine found in the nation’s capital. Notable fare among the Bib Gourmands includes Caribbean (Cane), Barbecue (Federalist Pig), Lao (Hanumanh), Italian (Stellina Pizzeria), and Ethiopian (Zenebech).


The announcement of D.C. Bib Gourmand restaurants comes one week before the announcement of its complete 2020 selection, including starred restaurants. The 2020 Michelin-starred restaurants in Washington, D.C., will be released on Tuesday, Oct. 1 and will go on sale Thursday, Oct. 3, 2019, at major book sellers for a suggested retail price of $12.95 (ISBN 9782067239005).


Here’s the list of new Bib Gourmands, with a short description of each restaurant...
