ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) — The prestigious Michelin guide has finally turned its eye to Atlanta!

The Michelin guide inspectors have scoured the city looking for the best food it has to offer. The guide ranks restaurants on a three-star system; even earning one star is a massive achievement, and three stars are reserved for the best restaurants in the world.

Of more than 16,000 restaurants on the guide worldwide, just 139 have three stars. There are just 12 three-star restaurants in the United States.

The guide also hands out “Bib Gourmand” awards, which celebrate high-quality food on a budget. According to the guide, Bib Gourmand restaurants offer a “simpler style of cooking, which is recognisable and easy-to-eat. A Bib Gourmand restaurant will also leave you with a sense of satisfaction, at having eaten so well at such a reasonable price.”

Michelin-star restaurants are often incredibly expensive, so if you’re looking for a great meal on a budget, look out for the Bib Gourmand restaurants in Atlanta!

Michelin Special Awards honor individuals. The Green Star Award recognizes restaurants “that are role models when it comes to sustainable gastronomy.”
