The new Michelin restaurant ratings are out and for the first time in my memory, a B'game restaurant has made the list with one star! The Times has the full list here. Reservations at Rasa just became harder to get and that is a good thing. While not as dour as the entertainment drought in B'game, the dining scene has been improving very slowly. Given how much work Rasa had to put into the space, this star will come in very handy.
Michelin stars are not easy to hold on to either. All Spice in San Mateo just lost the one they had. I've eaten there several times and it is quite good. Oddly, they opened a new location in EssEff and it got the star in its first year. My guess is that is more about the level of service than the food. Great restaurant anyway.
