Udon at the Michelin-starred Sushi Taro.

After months of speculation and salivation over which D.C. restaurants might receive coveted Michelin stars, the prestigious guide has released its picks. For top-rated eateries like Minibar and the Inn at Little Washington, the stars validate years of hard work in the kitchen while putting not-so-subtle pressure on chefs to improve on their A-game. But for diners, the Michelin Guide — and its more affordable Bib Gourmand list –- raise new questions about eating well in an ever-changing D.C. We look behind Michelin’s newly starred top picks and explore how these restaurants have changed “Steakhouse D.C.”
