Mobil Travel Guides released this year's listing of 4 and 5-star hotels and restaurants today. Jean-Robert at Pigall's has 4 stars again. It's the only restaurant in Ohio, Kentucky or Indiana on the list.
This used to be such a big deal every year when we waited for the announcement to see if Maisonette would still be on the 5-star list. This may not be as big a story: there was nothing like Maisonette's track record and even though they always were there on the list, every year it somehow felt like a cliffhanger. But it's great to see Pigall's get the recognition--which, in my opinion, it deserves.
