A Cost Guide to Washington, D.C.’s 2017 Michelin-Starred Restaurants

Washington DC 2017 Michelin
For the first time, The Michelin Guide bestowed their coveted stars to 12 restaurants in and around Washington, D.C. earlier this week. We ranked them by price based on average à la carte dinner entrée price, or by lowest prix fixe dinner price if à la carte is not an option. Note that these costs are accurate at the time of writing; many of these restaurants offer ever-changing menus based on the day or season. Prix fixe amounts are per person and before tax and tip unless otherwise noted. Any special reservation and BYOB guidelines are indicated.
