Oakland has been named a host city for the 2023 California Michelin Guide Ceremony, according to Visit Oakland. The invite-only event will take place July 18, 2023 at the Chabot Space & Science Center in the Oakland hills.

Oakland has a total of 25 restaurants listed in the Michelin Guide; five Oakland restaurants were added last month, including Lion Dance Cafe, Parche, Pomet, Snail Bar, and Bombera.

Michelin Guides are an international guide visited by anonymous scouts.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for people to experience all that Oakland has to offer – including our amazing culinary scene,” Peter Gamez, President and CEO of Visit Oakland, stated in a press release. “To be the chosen destination is a true testament to Oakland’s warm, authentic spirit, and we look forward to sharing that with everyone who visits.”
