Michelin Guide profile

I didn’t know the Michelin Guide had pulled out of Las Vegas (or Austria and LA for that matter), which is one of the things I learned from this profile on the restaurant guide’s troubles in the Financial Times. Also, the Guide is losing $21 million a year. It makes sense historically, but it’s so weird that this is published by a tire company.

One thought on “Michelin Guide profile

  1. Now, the guides serve more like awards than guidance for dinners. And since they’re printed only the local tounge, they aren’t that helpful when traveling internationally for lots of people. Plus, I’d rather get suggestions from eGullet, Twitter or friends.
