Michelin Adds 10 Restaurants to its Forthcoming Washington DC Guide, October 2023

Michelin just announced that it has added 10 restaurants to its forthcoming Michelin Guide Washington DC. It did not say if any of these additions will be awarded one or more stars, a Bib Gourmand, which honors high-end, more affordable restaurants, or will be just included in the guide without any special award. Still, being included in the Michelin Guide is already a huge success.  

Michelin Adds 10 Restaurants to its Forthcoming Washington DC Guide

Beloved BBQ at Love, Makoto

Capital Crossing

“This Japanese steakhouse is undeniably striking with dark walls, a neon hallway and large tables with central circular grills. Chef Makoto Okuwa and an Executive Chef/butcher Takeshi Omae focus on the Japanese style of barbecue instead of the more familiar Korean.” 

Chang Chang

Dupont Circle

“Pork soup dumplings are comfort in a bowl, but here they’re precise with superb broth and tender meat. Even something as simple as snow pea shoots with garlic is crafted with care.” 

Dear Sushi at Love, Makoto

Capital Crossing

“This is omakase minus the sticker shock, but the price point isn’t the only thing that delights diners. Opening snacks, handrolls, nigiri prepared in traditional and new ways—it’s all here and it’s all delectable.” 

Grazie Nonna

Dupont Circle

“Chef Gerald Addison and Casey Patten are behind this spot that’s long on nostalgia and short on shortcuts. This is hearty food that uses quality ingredients while channeling the memories of Mr. Patten’s nonna’s cooking.” 



“An eight course Kappo-style tasting menu with a focus on Wagyu woven with seafood is the main event…Go ahead and add caviar and uni if you’re feeling flush, but you won’t need them to feel well taken care of here.” 

Little Vietnam


“From cumin lamb dumplings lashed in chili oil to duck fat rice to an off-menu chicken Caesar rice wrap stuffed with chicken skin, the tightly curated menu is as tasteful as it is inspired.” 

Petite Cerise


“French bistro dining practically mandates dessert; a single profiterole with a delicious chocolate ganache sauce fits the bill.” 


Penn Quarter

“This fine dining concept seems fit for a queen, and good thing too, since Rania translates to ‘queen’ in Hindi and Sanskrit. Chef Chetan Shetty, formerly of Indian Accent in New York, delivers something entirely new here.” 

The Saga

West End

“This restaurant is minimalist to the max with a cream and beige palette, glass walls and light wood. Stylish all the same, they’re saving the drama for the food, which is a blend of Spanish classics with updated, Latin American-influenced twists.” 



“It’s always humming here, where long lines form for pastries, breakfast sandwiches or shakshuka in the morning and pita sandwiches, spreads and sides…Just try not finishing the batata tots.”
