“Hey Bren, can you recommend a good restaurant?” Why, yes, yes I can. Here you go! Listed in alphabetical order, this is my ongoing list of favorites!
MY ANNUAL RESTAURANT RANKINGS
At the end of each year (in addition to my FAVORITES list above) I post a list ranking the restaurants I think shined the most. Check them out!
MICHELIN STARRED DINING
I’ve listed all of the Michelin starred restaurants I’ve visited from 2008 until now. I will update with links as I go reviewing them, not sure I will get to all…but I will try. Since my visits, some restaurants have been dropped from the current guide or closed. Most have retained their ranking and others have since moved up from one to two stars. To say this has been an ongoing adventure is to put it lightly. From my very first experience at Le Cirque in Las Vegas, to my latest one at Yountville’s The French Laundry, each one has been a learning experience. This journey has taught me about passion, perseverance, and the relentless pursuit of perfection. I have the easy part; show up and reap the benefits of their blood, sweat, and tears. These chefs have left it all on the line. The road to the stars is not easy.
