MICHELIN Inspector Field Notes: August 2019

Highlights of the latest thoughts from our MICHELIN inspectors.


It's time to peel back the curtain a bit to give you some 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 California) or staying up to date with their latest Instagram posts. And yes, these are real inspectors sharing their personal thoughts.

Chilam Balam does BYOB right.

It seems the inspectors are fans of the new-ish restaurant Lokanta in Astoria, Queens.

I wonder what restaurant tried this . . . interesting . . . combo.

Frank Fat's sounds like the perfect spot for Friday dinner.

"Sometimes the hardest thing in the world is to keep things simple . . ."—truer words have never been written.
