Michelin Inspector Field Notes: December 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.

I'd agree with this statement.

When Kitchen 79 says something is spicy, they mean it.

Need a new lunch spot in NYC? Check out Loring Place.

Goosefoot doesn't skimp on the portions.

Fans of eggplant should head to Moti Mahal Delux to try this dish.

What happens when your family asks you to critique their cooking.

Happy Holidays! We can't wait to see what great dishes our inspectors will share next year.

\r\n

I would rather pass out into my food, face first, than admit to my server that the #Thaifood is too spicy #Kitchen79 #Queens

This lobster dish from Acquerello is mouthwatering.

Always treasure the classics at @acquerellosf but new dishes like this #lobster proved to be equally enticing and worthy of #twomichelinstars! #michelinguidesf #michelinguide2019 #michelinstars

Goosefoot doesn't skimp on the portions.

\r\n

The tasting at @GoosefootCHI is one of the more generously portioned ones that I can remember #OneMichelinStar

Fans of eggplant should head to Moti Mahal Delux to try this dish.

\r\n

Pro tip: skip the famous #butterchicken @MotiMahalUS for the supremely flavorful & delicious #EggplantPatiala #indianfood #trysomethingnew

\r\n

"Well, your carrot casserole isn't that great either," - my mother, after asking me to critique her new recipe #familytime#HappyHolidays all !!!
