18 New Restaurants Added to SF Michelin Bib Gourmand List

New, 3 comments

The juicy part of the 2010 San Francisco Michelin Guide—this year's crop of actual starred restaurants—won't be released until next Monday, but this morning, the little French red book has released its annual Bib Gourmand picks. The Bib Gourmand restaurants are defined as "Inspectors’ Favorites" for Good Value, which is defined here as two courses and a glass of wine or dessert for $40 or less.

Now to the fun part: the math. The complete list can be found after the jump, but there are 62 restaurants total on the list this year, up from 55 last year. 18 restaurants are new to the list, highlighted by Flour + Water, Dosa, Camino, and Scott Howard's Five. Of course, the new additions mean that 11 restaurants fell by the wayside this time around, some because of closure, some just because. On the list of the dearly departed: Espetus, Fork, Jojo, Namu, Oliveto, Osake, Poleng, South Park Cafe, Tamarindo, Venticello and Willi's Seafood Bar.
