Eater SF ponders one significant flaw with Michelin guides: Why a restaurant loses a star. Up north, two popular spots lost stars possibly because of a move, but there's no official explanation as to why---although Michelin says they never comment on why a restaurant loses a star. Here, Joe's, Matsuhisa and Saddle Peak Lodge all lost their single star. So the question is: Should Michelin disclose the reasons to the restaurateurs? [ESF; previously]
