Michelin Guide Drops LA & Las Vegas

Friday, October 15th, 2010

Jean-Luc Naret, director of Michelin Guides (image credit: has ceased publishing guides for Los Angeles and Las Vegas because sales were poor, and according to Jean-Luc Naret, director of Michelin Guides, “the people in Los Angeles are not real foodies. They are not too interested in eating well but just in who goes to which restaurant and where they sit”.

I would say, specifically speaking, this is a fair assumption amongst a certain group in LA, and especially when compared to other cities. Of course, this is certainly not true across the board and I know many people that would take offense to this remark, and probably already have!

As far as Las Vegas is concerned this was to be expected; just look at these people and conventioneers.
