MICHELIN Inspector Field Notes: October 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.

In need of a brunch spot in Sacramento any day of the week? Check out Bacon & Butter.

Looks like I need to make a trip to Southern Table.

Did you know we expanded the New York City guide to include Westchester County? Café Alaia is one of our newest Bib Gourmand-designated restaurants as a result.

It sounds like you should head to Nonna Beppa if you're ever in the area.

Head to Royal Feast to dine like the queen or king you are.

Where do you think they were?

If this picture doesn't make you want to dive into this mole from Casa Enrique, are your eyes even open?

Getting #brunch on a weekday feels #decadent, especially at @baconandbutters #StillALine #Pancakes #GravyforLunch #FoodComa #Sacramento

When was the last time you fell in love with a restaurant space? After arriving at my lunch recently, I never wanted to leave. Any guesses where? #inspectordiaries
