WASHINGTON — D.C. has been making some noise around the foodie scene recently.

In June, Food & Wine listed D.C.’s The Dabney as one of its 10 best new restaurants in the country.

Then in early August, three D.C. restaurants were named finalists for bon appetit’s Best New Restaurant award. None of the three — The Dabney, Bad Saint and Tail Up Goat — won, but simply being nominated is an honor worth noting.

About a week later, the same magazine named D.C. the “Restaurant City of the Year.”

Now in October, we’re presented with Michelin’s D.C. guide, which we’ve known for several months was on its way. The nation’s capital is the fourth U.S. city to earn the distinction, after New York, San Francisco, and Chicago.

Twelve restaurants were awarded stars, though none earned the coveted three-star ranking. Here is the list:

  • Pineapple & Pearls – 2 Stars
  • The Inn at Little Washington – 2 Stars
  • Minibar – 2 Stars
  • The Dabney – 1 Star
  • Tail Up Goat – 1 Star
  • Rose’s Luxury – 1 Star
  • Blue Duck Tavern – 1 Star
  • Plume – 1 Star
  • Masseria – 1 Star
  • Kinship – 1 Star
  • Fiola – 1 Star
  • Sushi Taro – 1 Star
  • Immediate reactions online showed displeasure at several restaurants being left off the list.
