Local restaurants, old and new, received Michelin stars April 29, according to a Chicago Tribune article.
The Michelin Guide's annual ratings play a significant role in anointing restaurant industry royalty, especially among travelers, tourists and suburbanites exploring the city.
Three Chicago restaurants were named first-time recipients. Ever, which chef Curtis Duffy launched last summer, and Moody Tongue Brewing each received two stars while Spanish/Portuguese seafood spot Porto received one.
In addition to Ever and Moody Tongue, three other Chicago restaurants maintained two star designations: Smyth, Oriole and Acadia. Alinea remains Chicago's only restaurant with a three-star rating. Seventeen Chicago restaurants (including such spots as Sepia, Elizabeth, Goosefoot and Next) kept their one-star ratings. Four restaurantsBand of Bohemia, Blackbird, Everest and Kikkofell off the list, and they all have closed.
