Michelin Reveals Chicago's 2016 Bib Gourmand List

The tire company's list of top affordable restaurants has some notable additions and dropoffs.

Michelin

Chicago's sixth edition of Michelin Madness is upon us. The tire company's always anticipated 2016 Bib Gourmand list is out, representing "quality food at a reasonable price" rather than the stars which usually go to finer dining establishments. And this year's list, which covers a myriad of Chicago neighborhoods, has some notable newcomers.

The Angry Crab, Dove's Luncheonette, and Bohemian House are among the hotspots that gained Bib Gourmand status this year. Fat Rice is on the list too, meaning that the Macanese powerhouse did not get a star again this year. Parachute is not on the list meaning it may get a star. Carriage House is still a Bib Gourmand despite its imminent reconcept into a "laid back Southern hangout" and Lao Sze Chuan is as well despite its health department woes.

Notable dropoffs include Dusek's, Gather, Lao Hunan, Paramount Room, and Mixteco Grill. Nightwood, Browntrout, and Azzurra came off because of their shuttering.

Read the full list of 2016 Bib Gourmands below; the Michelin stars for Chicago will be revealed next week.
