Michelin Stars for Chicago 2016 Are Announced

No new three-star restaurants, but Acadia moves up from one star to two.

On Tuesday, Michelin announced its latest star ratings for the City of Chicago. This came after the announcement of the French restaurant guide's best cheap eats, the Bib Gourmand awards, last week.

The biggest news looks to be the promotion for Acadia, Ryan McCaskey’s New American restaurant that opened in Chicago’s South Loop in 2011. Acadia has moved from one-star rating to a two-star, but there hasn’t otherwise been much movement in the list of top restaurants.

Among the one-star restaurants are two additions: Dusek’s (Board and Beer), a gastropub in Pilsen, and the Korean-inspired Parachute, run by husband-and-wife team Beverly Kim and Johnny Clark. The city’s only three-star restaurants remain Alinea and Grace. See the full list of 22 restaurants below:
