The annual guide releases its Bay Area picks for 2014.

Michelin Guides released their list of noteworthy restaurants in the Bay Area today, listing 38 restaurants in their annual guide.

A newcomer to the list was the long-expected State Bird Provisions (which received James Beard's Best New Restaurant Award last year), with a one-star rating.

Meanwhile, Quince jumped to a two-star rating, joining the likes of Atelier Crenn, Benu, Manresa, Saison, and Coi. There are now seven two-star restaurants in the Bay Area, and 29 one-star establishments. The French Laundry and the Restaurant at Meadowood, in the meantime, remain the only three-star restaurants in the Bay Area. Of course, the number of Bib Gourmands has increased, from 70 to 83, meaning affordable fine dining is on the rise.

Missing from the list (at least, the Bib Gourmands)? Media darling Mission Chinese, as Danny Bowien received a James Beard distinction last year. The Michelin website does acknowledge that "some people say it's the most over-hyped spot around, yet Mission Chinese Food is as popular as ever."

Chicago Michelin stars will be announced next month. In the meantime, check out the full list of Bay Area Michelin stars below.
