MICHELIN Inspector Field Notes: November 2019

Highlights of the latest thoughts from our MICHELIN inspectors.

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.

How is your winter bod coming along?

It seems someone wasn't listening . . .

Topolobampo would certainly be my pick for where to sample Mexican wines.

Have you checked out the updated Luce yet?

It's hard not to love a nice bowl of pasta, and this oxtail radiatori from Ceres' Table in Chicago sure looks like a winner.

You know it's bad when other diners decide to get involved.

After confirming that I was a party of one, the host asked if I wanted to wait for the rest of my party to arrive.

If I\u2019m going to order Mexican wine, I\u2019m doing it at @TopoloChicago. Happy to see numerous producers represented here @Rick_Bayless #OneMichelinStar #InspectorDiaries

Check out Sushi Noz the next time you need a nigiri fix.

I\u2019ve been waiting so long for food that the table next to me has started grilling the staff\u2014and offering me shots of vodka.
