The 2013 Michelin Guide for great dining in the San Francisco Bay Area and Wine Country has just been released. Michelin rates on a scale of one to three stars.
In years past, including 2012, Manresa earned two stars from Michelin and Dio Dekka awarded one star. Dio Dekka was named in 2011 as well, and Manresa had enjoyed the two star accolade for five years in a row.
This year, Dio Dekka was dropped from the list but Manresa came up with 2 stars once again. No other Los Gatos restaurant was named. (This may be unrelated, but it used to be possible to enjoy lunch at Dio Dekka, but a week or so ago I tried and discovered it’s only open for supper except on Sundays. So too with Palacio – only open for supper most days.)
In neighboring Saratoga, the Plumed Horse was awarded one star, as was Chez TJ in Mountain View and Alexander’s Steak House in Cupertino. Palo Alto can boast a 2 star rating at Baum
