Michelin Inspector Likes Boxing Room, Wants To Be Reborn as Cow

New, 1 comment

GrubStreet points out our local Michelin inspector(s) are at it again on the Twitter, and some of the tweets don't tell us a darn thing! Now that we know Kitchen Door in Napa "really does have bright red kitchen doors" and that one of our trusty guides would like to be reborn as a cow, let's move on to the bigger revelations. First off, the unannounced bordelaise on Michael Mina's waygu at Bourbon Steak wasn't well-received and the food at Plate Shop was "more hit than miss."

In the "good" column go Cin Cin's korean tacos, dinner with wine pairing at Saison, Café Jacqueline souffles, spicy gumbo at Boxing Room, the omakase at Kiss Seafood, and one inspector is "addicted" to Blue Bottle's New Orleans iced coffee. Meanwhile in NY, the Michelin tweeter(s) are being outed for fake tweets, meaning this could all just be one big farce.
