The Bay Area culinary world just got a little more star-studded with the release of the newest Michelin guide, which awarded stars to 40 restaurants and raised two -- Corey Lee's Benu and Josh Skenes' Saison, both in San Francisco -- into the highest culinary stratosphere.
About 100 restaurants in the world have earned three stars, a distinction Benu and Saison now share with The French Laundry in Yountville and The Restaurant at Meadowood in St. Helena.
