Michelin Inspector Field Notes: February 2019

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.

We've all been there.

One of the comments on this post is "#iwant" and that pretty much sums up my thoughts on this dish from Casa Mono.

Is it Friday yet?

Did you celebrate the Lunar New Year with xiao long bao?

Any guesses as to which Michelin-starred restaurant this was?

Who else is intrigued by this coffee-less "cappuccino" at Tosca Café?

Pro tip.

Momofuku Ss\u00e4m Bar knows that a touch of salt can go a long way with desserts.

\r\n

It\u2019s amazing what a touch of #salt can do for #dessert as in this #coconutcreampie #latergram @momolongplay #ssambar @davidchang #bibgourmand #michelinguideny

Who else is intrigued by this coffee-less \"cappuccino\" at Tosca Caf\u00e9?

\r\n

My favorite part of the \u201ccappuccino\u201d at #ToscaCafe is the lack of coffee #afterdinnerdrink #booze #chocolate #fiveoclockfriday @AprilBloomfield

The brunch at Sunday in Brooklyn is popular for good reason. Exhibit A:

\r\n

Gotta love #alldaybrunch @sundayinbrooklyn malted pancake, hazelnut-maple praline, brown butter #nationalpancakemonth #michelinguideny

When dining @LordStanley_sf make sure to save some #bread for mopping up the delectable #sauces #housemade #OneMichelinStar

Wasabi has the perfect salve for a cold evening.

\r\n

Is it still winter or something? Savoring a warming & rich bowl of #ramen from @wasabichicago. No lines make me a happy camper #michelinguidech
