1 Michelin Star
State Bird Provisions is the most affordable Michelin-starred restaurant in America (which is ironic, because it’s located in San Francisco, one of the most expensive cities in the country). When it opened in 2011, the restaurant mainly focused on its signature quail recipe (still on the menu today as CA state bird with provisions) and has since evolved into an eclectic, sumptuous menu of California ingredients served dim sum-style with quite a bit of Asian inspiration.
What’s the deal? The most expensive item comes in at $36 while Michelin lists a night out averaging $25 to $90. Savory standouts include Wagyu toast, yuba and shiitake inari, and Sichuan pepper-beef tongue with fried rice.
