The full list of Michelin star winners in DC isn’t supposed to be released until later today, but apparently chefs are already getting phone calls about whether their restaurants made the cut.

Chef José Andrés announced on Twitter this morning that his avant-garde restaurant Minibar earned two stars. (The highest distinction is three stars.)

Stay tuned for more Michelin coverage later today. In the meantime, read about why Michelin launched its fourth US guide in DC (hint: it’s not solely about the restaurants) and what diners who travel the world to eat at starred restaurants think about it. Check out Michelin’s Bib Gourmand list of more affordable eateries, released last week, here.
