The 2022 edition of Michelin Guide California features Bib Gourmand restaurants from Los Angeles and Orange counties.
The term Bib Gourmand refers to a restaurant that offers a full menu of a starter, main course and dessert, making it possible to order two courses and a glass of wine or dessert for $49 or less, excluding tax and gratuity, according to a news release from Michelin.
“Food lovers can get a taste of cuisines from around the world at a very reasonable price,” Gwendal Poullennec, international director of the Michelin Guides, said in a statement. “The inspector teams were very enthusiastic about this new group of Bib Gourmands — a smorgasbord of international flavors amplified by creative touches and quality California ingredients.”
