The French restaurant guide made its announcement for awards in the Bay Area today and the biggest news is that Manresa, David Kinch’s vegetable-forward restaurant in Los Gatos, has finally been awarded three stars (up from two last year). Manresa was closed for six months last year after a fire destroyed its kitchen, bathrooms, and storage areas.

In other major news: Commis and Campton Place have both been upgraded to two stars, and 15 new restaurants have earned one star. These include Lazy Bear, formerly a pop-up, and Kin Khao, a Thai restaurant previously awarded Bib Gourmand status. See the full list below:
