Though we're sort of stepping on our big sister's toes
over at The Kitchen
, It's a big week for Los Angeles with the first ever Michelin Rating guide
coming to the city of angels. The Michelin Guide ratings 1-3 stars have long been used in Europe where you ain't nothin' with out your stars.
Whether or not you like you are a full blown foodie, or just like to treat yourself to a nice meal once in a while The Michelin Guide could lead you to a new place you've never been or reinforced a desire to go to a place you've long heard of.
Sadly, we didn't get any three stars, but sometimes it's good to aspire to something greater.
What the stars mean:
One star: "A very good restaurant in its category"
Two stars: "Excellent cooking and worth a detour"
Three stars: "Exceptional cuisine and worth the journey"
