The prestigious California Michelin Guide–which included a handful of Brentwood area restaurants in its previous edition–will still return in 2021 after being canceled due to the pandemic.
As reported by Eater Los Angeles, the California Michelin Guide will be published in late September after not putting out a guide in 2020 due to the pandemic.
The guide functions off a rating system of one, two or three stars, with only the most prestigious of restaurants achieving the coveted three-star rating. The Michelin guide was first published in 1900 by the tire company as a way to get European travelers to drive and visit their local restaurants. It has turned into a well-known guide book with even a one-star rating being considered a huge accomplishment.
While no Brentwood restaurant earned a star, Pizzana located on San Vicente earned a prestigious recommendation.
“Every pizza at this area darling begins with a nod to Neapolitan tradition: start with the perfect dough and bake it into a crust that remains crisp and light right through the middle. This careful process and that almighty oven shipped from Italy can be observed with longing through the glass-walled kitchen,” reads the review by the French tire company.
In addition, two nearby restaurants earned Michelin stars: Mori Sushi located on 11500 West Pico Boulevard and Shunji Japanese Cuisine located on 12244 West Pico Boulevard.
Last year’s guide was released in June 2019, but a release date for the 2020 guide has not been announced.
