Chloe, Tiger Fork and Timber Pizza among the 19 new, moderately priced restaurants listed.
Michelin just revealed the first ranking of the 2019 DC guide (officially out September 17). Plan on seeing stars next week, but first: the Bib Gourmands, “restaurants offering exceptional food at moderate prices.” For Michelin that’s $40 for two courses—or small plates, given the abundance of tapas-style spots on the list—plus a glass of wine or dessert (tax and tip not included).
A total of 19 restaurants were added to this year’s lineup—a big jump from last year’s anticlimactic guide, when only three new Bib Gourmands (and two starred restaurants) were included. Among the newcomers are Timber Pizza Co., Toki Underground, and current darling, Maydan. Two restaurants were also omitted: New York-based Boqueria and 2 Amys (which is temporarily closed, though TBD on whether that was a factor).
