Twin Anchors recently had the honor of being awarded a Bib Gourmand in the Michelin Guide Chicago, 2011 Restaurants. The Bib Gourmand designation denotes good cuisine at a reasonable price in a variety of comfort categories. Defined as “Inspectors’ Favorites for Good Value,” Bib Gourmand restaurants offer two courses and a glass of wine or dessert for $40 or less (tax and gratuity not included), and are often of most value to a city’s residents, who regularly dine in neighborhood restaurants.
The Michelin Guide lists approximately 300 fine restaurants in Chicago, with a select number receiving the coveted stars. Forty-six Chicago-area restaurants have earned Bib Gourmand status. The inspectors in Chicago found an excellent and diverse selection of restaurants meeting the criteria for the Bib Gourmand across the city and in a few of the closer suburbs. Bib Gourmands are spots where residents send their friends and families and represent the diversity and creativity found in the Chicago restaurant scene.
