"I understand the criticisms of the Michelin guide and I think detractors have made some valid points. However, I would really like to see a Michelin guide published for DC. If a restaurant like Komi, for example, got recognition, I can't help but think it would raise the quality of the DC dining scene over time. Perhaps restaurateurs and chefs who would usually ignore DC would now give it some consideration. I'm not expecting DC to match the number of 2 and 3 Michelin star restaurants in a city like NYC. But just having a few restaurants here with this kind of recognition would be great."—An anonymous commenter on news that the Michelin Guide Might Be Expanding to Washington, DC.
