Michelin reaction: 'puked on my keyboard'

If the Michelin guide produced head scratching in New York, it's generated something more serious here in the Bay Area.

Confessions of a Restarant Whore: "What the fuck? ... Don't even get me started on Michael Mina's two stars. I just about puked on my keyboard reading that shit."

Vinography: "It's pretty hard to see a restaurant like Gary Danko or Rubicon rated the same as Range."

San Francisco Gourmet: "To put Michael Mina and especially Aqua in the two star category while pushing The Dining Room at the Ritz-Carlton, Fleur de Lys and Masa's down to one star is, to put it bluntly, patently absurd."

EGullet's Joe Gerard: "The Danko ranking jumps off the page."

EGullet's 'lizard': "The Danko rating has to be especially painful in light of former co-owner Nick Peyton's 2-star coup at Cyrus."

Bauer blogged on this back in June, and well at that, but has not entered the discussion today. Maybe a reported post tomorrow?

Danko and the Ritz both have five stars from Mobil and five diamonds from AAA, as seen in my handy-dandy chart. Ritz also has four stars from Bauer.

Two stars for Michael Mina?!? WTF, indeed! I guess those Michelin folks consider bland, uninspired food and a rotation of servers who can't pronounce, let alone adequately explain, what it is they're serving, worthy of 2 stars... I don't get it.
