2015 Chicago Michelin Bib Gourmands Revealed


This year's list has 10 fewer Bib Gourmands than last year's.

Chicago Michelin season is officially underway, as the Michelin Guide's 2015 list of Chicago Bib Gourmands—essentially the Michelin-approved less expensive restaurants—have been revealed. The Michelin Guide describes them as "restaurants that serve two courses and a glass of wine or dessert for $40 or less" and "are the restaurants that the Michelin inspectors frequent themselves."

This year's Bib Gourmand list sees a major drop in overall Chicago restaurants as well as new restaurants that the Michelin inspectors added to the list. Last year's list included 69 restaurants while this year's has just 59. Inspectors added 21 new restaurants last year but added just 11 this year.

Some big players made it onto the list this year: Matthias Merges' A10, Dusek's, Beverly Kim and Johnny Clark's Parachute, Carriage House (despite the exit of chef Mark Steuer), The Dawson, Beatrix, Untitled, Table Donkey & Stick, TWO, Herb, and Azzurra are all honored by Michelin for the first time.

Some major players also dropped off the list. Mercat a la Planxa, Found, Ada Street, Urban Belly, Juno (which was closed for nearly eight months due to a fire), Antique Taco, Autre Monde, Owen & Engine, Libertad, Gemini Bistro, Q BBQ (in La Grange) and Marion Street Cheese Market were all removed.

The possibility always exists that restaurants were left off the Bib Gourmand list because they were bumped up to star status.

Read the full list of 2015 Bib Gourmands below; the Michelin stars for Chicago will be revealed on November 11.
