–Michelin Guide inspectors spend all year on the road discovering the best restaurants to recommend and what they have found is too good to keep a secret.

The guide recently posted a list of new Central Coast restaurants to its list of recommendations.

“By unveiling some of the novelties brought by our inspectors throughout the year, we are enriching our digital tools to further strengthen the links that unite us with food lovers,” said Gwendal Poullennec, international director of the Michelin Guides. “As the restaurant industry continues to face unprecedented challenges and uncertainties, we hope that these revelations and regular selection updates throughout the year will help showcase the profession and invite everyone to discover and support the restaurants that surround them. “

Paso robles

Justin’s restaurant
Cuisine: Californian
Fortunately located in the Justin Vineyard, this California haven is a celebration of the seasons and bountiful local ingredients. Lunch is remembered, but the menu really shines at night, when the kitchen team gets creative to prepare deliciously complementary dishes. As expected, their wine list is impressive, filled with their own labels among other unique selections.

Six cooking tests
Cuisine: Contemporary
A multi-course tasting inspired by the seasons of the Central Coast is on the program. Fridays and Saturdays offer an extensive menu, with dishes that showcase the chef’s unique style. Imagine a poultry liver mousse with shallot-onion jam; Crispy duck tail au jus and marinated beets.

San Luis Obispo

Ox + Anchor
Cuisine: Steakhouse
Chef Ryan Fancher’s modern steakhouse is located on the grounds of the San Luis Opisbo Hotel. Steaks and charred sides (creamed spinach?)

Santa barbara

Bibi ji
Cuisine: Indian
This trendy Indian dining room is causing a stir. Harnessing the best of land and sea, these dishes were born to be shared. Discover inventive bites such as crispy cauliflower mixed with a chili-garlic sauce and finished with sesame. The barra kebab showcases intensely spiced tandoor lamb chops with mint chutney.

Cuisine: Spanish
The waiters know the menu by heart, so follow their lead and start with tapas like a crispy skillet with tomato, before diving into a hearty chorizo ​​and pollo paella. A tribute to the El Bullí olive is a contemporary signature, while carpaccio topped with pickled mustard seeds and aged sherry vinegar is still popular.

Santa Cruz County

Alder (Downtown)
Cuisine: American
The menu here features responsibly sourced oysters and choice cuts of aged beef. Get started with a crispy crab sandwich served with a fresh tartar sauce and piping hot fries. Enjoy wood-roasted shrimp with leeks and pancetta, then end the evening with the Raspberry Dream Sundae.

Chin (Aptos)
Italian food
Soft hues, dark green framed doors, and a barn-like structure foster common sense. The menu is unusual, revealing fried sardines with Meyer lemon aioli or white bean soup with chickpeas in a funky prosciutto broth. However, the cake is made up of pizzas, such as the “Pesto”, shimmering with white cheese, Crescenza and caciocavallo, or the “Sardenaira”, with tomato sauce, anchovies and olives.
