Michelin has just released a list of “Bib Gourmands” restaurants.
These restaurants were defined by Michelin’s inspectors as “Favorites for Good Value.” Bib Gourmand restaurants offer two courses and a glass of wine or dessert for $40 or less (tax and gratuity not included), and are often of most value to a city’s residents, who regularly dine in neighborhood restaurants.
Of the 138 recipients of the designation this year, 20 are in Queens. Of the 20, you read about 18 of them first in the Dining Out column of this newspaper.
