Might the anonymous Michelin inspectors soon be joining the legions in line for Little Serow? The Michelin Guide — the world's oldest and most recognized restaurant guide — is considering an expansion to DC and other US cities, according to Michael Ellis, the new international director of Michelin. In an interview with Eater National, Ellis says:
I really want to expand into more cities in the U.S... I'm considering places like DC, Miami, Atlanta.
Currently, Michelin publishes guides in New York, Chicago, San Francisco and several international cities, and Ellis adds that further expansion might include a return to Los Angeles and Las Vegas, plus new guides in Seattle, Houston and Dallas. He also talks about the criticisms that have been leveled at the guide, adapting to a changing dining culture, the need for anonymity, and more.
