The 2022 Michelin Guide to DC Restaurants is out and bigger than ever. This year’s “little red book” has 24 starred restaurants, with four new one-star à la carte destinations: Albi wood-fired Mediterranean restaurant at Navy Yard; Tasting-counter-in-a-West End Imperfecto restaurant: the Chef’s Table; Factory-centric fixed-price Oyster in Shaw; and Johnny Spero’s contemporary tasting room in Georgetown, Reverie.

The wallet-friendly Bib Gourmand prices are even more varied, with a total of 36 restaurants where diners can get a full meal for around $40 per person. New arrivals range from Indian street food at Daru off H Street in the northeast, to destination-worthy ramen at Petworth’s Menya Hosaki.

As has been the case since Michelin’s launch here, the guide only covers restaurants in the district proper, with the exception of the three-star Inn at Little Washington in Rappahannock County, Virginia.
