Michelin Names 630 Value-for-Money Restaurants Across France

Michelin (ML) today released its selection of all the 630 restaurants in France that will be recognized next month for serving good, inexpensive meals.

The Bib Gourmand label indicates a restaurant serving three-course meals offering good value for the money, defined as less than 35 euros ($46) in Paris and 29 euros elsewhere. The selection has increased by 140 percent in six years, with more than 120 additions in 2012 alone.

“These restaurants never fail to delight Michelin guide readers with their wide range of styles, from traditional terroir to trendy gastro-bistro, from ethnic adventure to extremely creative,” Michelin said in an e-mailed release.

Michelin’s guide to France is scheduled to be announced on Feb. 27. The Clermont-Ferrand, France-based company is the world’s second-biggest tiremaker, after Bridgestone Corp. It produced its first guide in August 1900, distributed free of charge (until 1920) and intended for chauffeurs.
