What is the Michelin Bib Gourmand Award?
Introduced in 1997, the Bib Gourmands are awarded to restaurants that earned the attention of Michelin inspectors for their affordability and remarkable dining experience. Bib Gourmand restaurants offer a full menu of starters, main courses, and desserts, making it possible to order two courses and a glass of wine or dessert for around $40 or less (tax and gratuity not included).
What is the Difference Between Michelin Star and Michelin Bib Gourmand?
The Michelin Star and Michelin Bib Gourmand distinctions are different. The most coveted Michelin award for chefs all over the world is to attain the globally renowned Michelin Star. Restaurants can receive zero to three Michelin stars based on their food. Restaurants are judged based on the quality of the ingredients used, mastery of flavor and cooking techniques, the personality of the chef in his cuisine, value for money, and consistency between visits. While the Michelin Bib Gourmand award is not quite a star, it is a highly regarded award given to restaurants serving good food at moderate prices.
