Michelin may be best known for its prestigious starred restaurants, but the tire company’s restaurant guide also highlights more affordable eateries on its “Bib Gourmand” list. While you’ll have to wait until Oct. 13 to find out which restaurants earn one to three stars in the first-ever DC guide, the Bib Gourmand list was released today. Nineteen restaurants made the cut—from Filipino to Ethiopian to Turkish.

The restaurants are selected by an anonymous group of inspectors. To qualify for the Bib Gourmand guide, the restaurants must have two courses and a glass of wine or dessert for $40 or less (excluding tax and tip). Take a look:
