Michelin Inspector Field Notes: June 2018

Hear directly from the source the latest thoughts from our Michelin inspectors.

inspectors

We've already given you a glimpse of how the inspection process works, but now we want to peel back the curtain a little more to give you additional insight into what's going through the minds of our famously anonymous inspectors. The easiest way to do that? Following one of their Twitter accounts (Chicago, New York or San Francisco) or staying up to date with their latest Instagram posts. And yes, these are real inspectors sharing their personal thoughts.

Praise for the return of La Goule.

Need a new spot for date night? We've got you covered.

Everyone hates a dead cell phone.

Have you had fried rabbit before? The team at Dusek's knows how to do it right.

No, that's not sashimi you're looking at from Avery.

Yes, there is such a thing as too much gold.

In the mood for Caribbean food? Head to Gladys to get your fix.

I like this person, whoever they are.

Someone certainly has a sweet tooth.

Günter Seeger has some delicious desserts.

As always, it's best to be on time for your reservations.

The inspectors got in on the Negroni Week action. Did you?

\r\n

In honor of #negroniweek here are some of our favorite clicks of this iconic Italian #cocktail #cutbywolfgangpuck @chefwolfgangpuck #michelinguideny

The #LES is on a role with such adorable date-night spots as #Cervo and #LilGem - these are must-hits for couples

A case is made for the vegetarian tartare at Momotaro.

\r\n

This #vegetarian spin on #steaktartare @momotarochicago which subs #tomatoes for #beef is so delicious, you may even consider giving up the bovine version altogether #michelinguidech

\r\n

The measure of comfort for the #digital age? When your bar seat offers an outlet to charge your phone #inspectordiaries

Have you had fried rabbit before? The team at Dusek's knows how to do it right.

\r\n

The chicken-fried rabbit at @DuseksChicago gives all fried birds across the country a run for their money #onestar

No, that's not sashimi you're looking at from Avery.

\r\n

Turning A5 #wagyu fat into a sashimi-style course was quite ingenious @avery_sf #barbecue #caviar #michelinguidesf

Yes, there is such a thing as too much gold.

\r\n

I was just given \u201cgold-plated scissors\u201d to cut (boneless) fried chicken thighs covered with gold flakes. Check please. Best not to say where!

This dessert from Bouley at Home looks like a great way to end a meal.

\r\n

#redcurrant #sorbet and #honey made this warm #walnutcake light, tasty and magnifique! @bouleyathome @davidbouley #dessert #michelinguideny

\r\n

Thankful that #Gladys in #CrownHeights was out of #jerkchicken b/c I discovered that their #jerkpork is also excellent! #Caribbeanfood #bibgourmand

\r\n

I\u2019ve experienced dishes that made me want to lick my plate, but today I saw someone lick both sides of their knife after every dish #CantBlameThem

This bowl of noodles from Sichuan Chong Qing is a great way to cool down during the summer.

\r\n

Glad I ordered the chilled #noodles with #cucumber as it helped cool my palate between the #spicy #mouthnumbing and peppercorn-laden bites at #SichuanChongQing #chinesefood #peninsula #michelinguidesf

Someone certainly has a sweet tooth.

\r\n

It's difficult to #resist ordering #souffle every single time I see it on a #menu but is 3 times in a week too much? #sugarfiend

A great bouillabaisse can be found at Chumley's.

\r\n

So glad I passed up the #burger for this fantastic #bouillabaisse with #seabass #scallops and #fennel @chumleysnyc #michelinguideny

G\u00fcnter Seeger has some delicious desserts.

\r\n

Fraises de bois #sorbet and wild flower honey #parfait topped with #beepollen - kudos to the pastry chef @GunterSeegerNY on these two #delicious #seasonal #desserts #onestar

In addition to ramen, there's also great fried chicken at Momofuku CCDC.

\r\n

#ramen at @momofukudc is still being slurped-up left, right & center, but their #friedchicken is a thing of beauty @davidchang #michelinguidedc

Pro-tip: dinner doesn\u2019t begin @ELideasChi until all parties are seated, so to avoid the stink eye from nine other tables & kitchen crew, get there by 7pm sharp!
