Dominique Crenn Is First Female Chef in U.S. with 2 Michelin Stars

The playful, precise cuisine at San Francisco's Atelier Crenn inspires odes from Chowhound users and CHOW editors alike, who adore Chef Dominique Crenn's poetry on the plate. Many think that Crenn's kitchen produces SF's best modernist cuisine.

This week the San Francisco 2013 Michelin Guide pretty much agreed. Yesterday Michelin announced its 2013 star rankings. Aside from the usual controversies about who won big (Meadowood again) and who was ignored (sorry State Bird), Atelier Crenn leapt from one star to two, making Dominique Crenn the only female chef in the United States ever to be so honored.
