Washington D.C. has got two new restaurants recognized by the Michelin Star Guide with one star each for their innovative tasting menus. The recently released 2018 edition of the Washington D.C. Michelin Guide has named Komi and Métier as very good restaurants in their respective categories.

With these two restaurants entering the club, the number of restaurants in Washington D.C. with at least one star has increased to 14. But sadly, no D.C. restaurant has been able to get three Michelin stars yet.

Komi is headed by Johnny Monis and has been a favorite with city people for a splurge-worthy meal. Métier has retained its star this year and is the upmarket sister eatery of Kinship. With Metier, it is the second Michelin star for Chef Eric Ziebold. As a trend, dining at the Michelin star list newcomers would not come easy. A dinner at Komi will cost $150 (excluding tax and gratuity) in addition to drinks, and a single tasting at Métier costs $200 (including gratuity) without drinks. In 2018 Michelin Guide for Washington D.C., Minibar, Pineapple and Pearls, and The Inn at Little Washington repeated two stars for "excellent cuisine worth a detour."

Washington D.C. has once again been shut out from a three-star restaurant, the highest possible rating, for which a restaurant must be flawless from start to finish.
