I didn't think it was possible, but the Michelin Guide Rouge is coming to the US! Reviewing 500 restaurants in New York, starting 2006. Finally some serious restaurant ratings, the perfect antidote for the tiresome populism of Zagat's. Sounds like they might dumb down the Guide a bit for the US market. I can't imagine photos adding anything and I sure hope they don't try to disguise being French. Still, good news.
