Michelin Reveals Bay Area's 2014 Bib Gourmands Ahead Of MICHELIN Guide Debut More restaurants than ever make famous list for quality food at a good value

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Michelin revealed its coveted list of Bib Gourmand restaurants in the greater San Francisco area, exactly one week prior to the release of the highly anticipated MICHELIN Guide San Francisco 2014.

This year 83 establishments made the list, which represents a sizable geographic area, including the city proper, the greater Bay Area and the region's famous Wine Country. This is the most Bib Gourmand selections for the region since the San Francisco guide was first published by Michelin in 2006.

The 2014 Bib Gourmands were selected by Michelin's esteemed and anonymous food inspectors and they represent restaurants that serve two courses and a glass of wine or dessert for $40 or less (tax and gratuity not included). Most importantly, they are the restaurants that the Michelin inspectors frequent themselves.

While the famous Michelin stars remain the most celebrated international distinction in the MICHELIN Guide, the Bib Gourmand is also a highly desired distinction among restaurateurs. In the 2014 edition, 22 different types of cuisine are represented among the Bib Gourmands and include restaurants across the region, including San Francisco, East Bay, Wine Country, Marin, South Bay and the Peninsula.

The Bib Gourmands are selected by Michelin's famously anonymous inspectors who dine across the area regularly. These local inspectors are trained to scrupulously apply the same time-tested methods used by Michelin inspectors for many decades throughout the world. This ensures a uniform, international standard of excellence.  As a further guarantee of complete objectivity, Michelin inspectors pay all their bills in full. For more information on the inspectors and the guide go to www.michelintravel.com.
