Michelin Round Up - Washington, DC

In 2017, Michelin first came to Washington, DC to rank restaurants for its prestigious list, and in 2018, each of the restaurants listed in the first DC red book received a follow-up visit from the tire company's anonymous team of inspectors.  DC remains the only U.S. city Michelin rates that doesn’t have a three star restaurant. Both New York and San Francisco have six restaurants apiece with three stars, while Chicago has two. There are only about 100 restaurants worldwide with three stars.  Maybe one day... Keith and I have been fortunate enough to have dined at all listed so far on the DC list.  Find our round up below.

Métier offers a seven course tasting menu plus pre-dinner hors d'oeuvres at $200 per guest (service is included).  A wine pairing is also available at $145 per guest.  Owned by acclaimed Chef Eric Ziebold and partner Célia Laurent, Métier is a small, intimate Michelin star restaurant seating only 36 guests that is tucked into the lower level of a historic brick building dating back to 1907.  The building also houses Kinship, the sister restaurant that offers an approachable à la carte menu. Both restaurants offer creative and contemporary American cuisine with a continued dedication to hospitality. Closest Metro is Convention Center.

As the recent recipient of one star from the prestigious Michelin Guide and the only Forbes five star rated restaurant in DC, Plume at The Jefferson hotel serves as an elegant backdrop to the artistry of the award-winning culinary team. We sat at a cozy nook as we savored classic dishes using traditional techniques and seasonal ingredients that are inspired by the harvest from Thomas Jefferson's kitchen gardens at Monticello. Closest Metro is Farragut North.
