No The Temple Club? What’s the deal?
And I wonder whether Aina is getting a star…?! That would be surprising to me.
I like Dyafa a lot but it really isn’t $40 for two courses and a glass of wine or dessert…

Sir & Star
Sichuan Chongqing restaurant, a Shanghai place in Cupertino, and Foxsister were visited positively according to old @sfmichelinguide Twitter feed posts, but none made the cut. Sir and Star was too, so that may be elevated to a 1 star. No mention of Aina.
I only found one with similar name in San Mateo?
That’s right. They’re fine, but not more notable than places already on the list.
Not to nitpick, but that’s the so-called 2019 list, not the 2018 list.
Curious if anyone has been recently and thinks this was a good call by the inspectors. My impression from my one visit (granted, it was like their third night open) was that it was fun as a bar but an overpriced and borderline-exploitative mediocrity in terms of food.

Erm looks like it got downgraded to “the plate” category
Oh. Looks like Adega lost its star. Eight Tables didn’t make the list.
What’s the plate category?
There are 315 restaurants in the MICHELIN Guide San Francisco 2019 selection, including eight with three stars, six with two stars, 43 with one star, 68 Bib Gourmand establishments and 191 restaurants designated with a Michelin Plate.
I guess its like the little poster where you can hang up on the wall and say you were on the Michellin guide? The step below bib? I really have no idea since it wasn’t quite explained.
I see them both on the plate list.
It’s Russell’s paradox: the category of all restaurants in the Guide that don’t belong to any category. They could have used Bertrand Russell’s face as a symbol.
Here’s an explanation that isn’t really an explanation:
Chinese Michelin plates:
Hong Kong flower lounge
Din tai fung
Eight tables but not China Live?
Huh, SF (well… greater Bay Area…) has the most 3 star Michellin restaurants in the US.
Hmmph- “restaurants where the inspectors have discovered quality food.”
Or, “decent places where the inspectors manage to get to”
My (not too charitable) interpretation is that they are in restaurant hell: Bib Gourmand quality but too expensive to be classified as Bib Gourmand.
Should be labelled as Premium price Bib Gourmand, same bib icon but in gold.
It’s getting too confusing with so many labels.
