The Michelin Guide is back after a brief hiatus during the pandemic. And this year, Los Angeles is prominently featured. In addition to fine-dining staples like Josiah Citrin’s Mélisse or Brandon Go’s Hayato, six new restaurants in LA received stars. But once again, no LA restaurants received the elusive three-star distinction this year.
