58 Chicago restaurants win Bib Gourmands for 2021 – NBC Chicago


For 24 Chicago restaurants, Thursday’s Michelin star announcement is celebrated for more than the coveted title, at a time when so many are looking to bounce back from the coronavirus pandemic.

The Michelin Guide has announced this year’s stars, with two newcomers receiving their first two-star rating and another one star for the first time. The only restaurant to receive three stars was the famous Alinea, which is no stranger to the Michelin list.

“Michelin Guide Inspectors were honored to commemorate the strength and creativity of Chicago’s chefs and restaurant teams throughout the past year,” Gwendal Poullennec, international director of the MICHELIN Guides, said in a statement. “Our teams look forward to discovering even more new talent in the region as the industry continues to emerge from the crisis.”

The announcement comes just two days after 58 restaurants in the city received the Bib Gourmand distinction.

Newcomers to the Michelin star list were Ever in the West Loop, which received two stars, Moody Tongue in the South Loop with two stars, and Porto in Bucktown, which received one star.
