California’s 2021 MICHELIN® Stars Are Here

After a break in 2020, the world’s most anticipated restaurant awards are back — MICHELIN Guide has announced the 2021 Star selection restaurants in California.

For over a century, the MICHELIN Guide has been anointing fine-dining restaurants across the globe as leaders in their field through the MICHELIN Star system. This year, OpenTable is proud to be an official MICHELIN Guide booking partner, making it easier than ever to book a table at these world-renowned spots. 

These acknowledgements are even more well-deserved this year, after restaurants have persevered through shutdowns and rapidly changing dining formats, while still finding ways to give diners unique and memorable dining experiences. 

Without further ado, OpenTable would like to congratulate these California restaurants who are joining the MICHELIN Guide selection for 2021.
