The Palm Beach area has its share of highly rated Michelin Rated Restaurants. The Michelin Guide didn't start out as the iconic dining guide it is revered to be today. In fact, its roots were far more modest. The petite red guidebook was originally conceived merely to encourage a food enthusiast to take to the road and explore other options.
The Michelin brothers, Andre and Edouard, founded their designated little French tire company, “Michelin Tyres”. As a strategy to get more people to drive their cars, only 3,000 on the road at the time, and thusly require new tires the Michelin brothers produced a small traveler’s guide filled. The guide was full of handy information, maps, tips to change a tire, gas stations, and a listing of places to eat or accommodations for the evening. Based on the principle that “man only truly respects what he pays for”, a brand-new Michelin Guide was launched in1920 and sold for seven francs.
The guide began to award stars for fine dining, initially marking restaurants them with a single star. Later, a grading of zero, one, two, and three stars was introduced, and in 1936, the criteria for the starred rankings were published. The remarkable prudence of the founding Michelin brothers has given the company an aptitude, namely, “to make driving, tourism and the search for unforgettable experiences available to all."
