Don't Tell Nonna: Michelin Mentions in Italia
Throughout my travels I took full advantage of this expansive repertoire and enjoyed some Michelin Platted ristoranti. The Michelin Plate is a new recognition in the 2018 Michelin Guide given to restaurants as an honorable mention to point out that "inspectors have discovered and guarantee a high standard food & wine experience" says Laurent Davis, a publicist for Michelin North America. Some have questioned the necessity of the Michelin Plate when the Bib Gourmand recognition continues to be in use since 1955, but I regress. Buon appetito!

It's no wonder that Italian is everyone's favorite cuisine! Alright, I may be exaggerating, but tell me you don't want a slice of pizza or some pasta right about now. Italy's cuisine has an endless array of options to offer and with young chefs reinventing classics there's no telling, or end to, what the culinary scene will have to offer in the years to come.
Luckily you won't need to book airfare for meals at these world class Italian cuisine restaurants, but you will need reservations. Have a look at Del Posto & Babbo in New York City.
