were announced last week and generally speaking there weren't any huge surprises.
The good news for the Sloop is that our fine dining staple, Acadia (1639 S. Wabash), retained it's 2-star rating for the second consecutive year.
For those unfamiliar, the Michelin Guide is considered one of the most prestigious awards in the food industry. An upgrade or downgrade can significantly impact a restaurants business.
With the 2-star rating, Acadia is in rarified air in the Chicago market. There are only two 3-star restaurants (Alienia and Grace) and five 2-star restaurants (Acadia, 42 Grams, Oriole, Sixteen, Tru). What this means is that the guide considers Acadia to be one of the best seven restaurants in the Chicago.
