Seeing Stars

Manresa is the proud recipient of two Michelin stars in the newly released Michelin Guide San Francisco Bay Area & Wine Country 2007. "This is a tremendous honor,'' said David Kinch. "In 30 years of working in restaurants, Michelin has always been my bible when traveling. To be in it is a big deal because it's read and respected worldwide.'' Manresa is among only four restaurants in the Bay Area to receive two Michelin stars while The French Laundry is the only Bay Area restaurant to win three stars.

Weeks prior to the Michelin announcement, Manresa was named one of "America's Top 50 Restaurants," as chosen by Ruth Reichl and the editors of Gourmet magazine in their October 2006 issue.
