Michelin Unveils France’s Bib Gourmands for 2017

AKA the more affordable Michelin restaurants


Restaurant guidebook publisher Michelin has kicked off the new year by revealing its new Bib Gourmands for France.

Restaurants given the Bib Gourmand distinction are more affordable — and more casual — than their typically pricey starred counterparts: Each Bib Gourmand restaurant must provide a prix-fixe menu with a starter, entree, and dessert for 32 euros or less (36 euros in Paris).

Seventeen of France’s new Bib Gourmands are located in Paris. They include Comptoir Tempero, a cozy bistro in the 8th arrondissement from Brazilian chef Alessandra Montagne and her husband Olivier; Mamagoto, serving French-Japanese small plates in the 10th; and also in the 10th, neo-brasserie 52 Faubourg St-Denis from chef Charles Compagnon, who’s largely credited with reviving the all-day, laid-back brasserie model.

Here’s the list of the new Paris additions, per French newspaper Le Figaro:

Bocca Rossa
Eiffel 20
52 Faubourg St-Denis
L'Auberge du Roi Gradlon
Comptoir Tempero
Le Radis Beurre
L’Antre Amis
No. 41
Comme Chez Maman
L’Envie du Jour
Le Réciproque

The print edition of the 2017 Bib Gourmand guide goes on sale January 13 and will include 646 restaurants in all.

Those with a significantly fatter wad of cash burning a hole in their pocket should stay tuned for the 2017 Michelin star ratings, which will be revealed on February 9.
