Dominique Crenn Reacts to Her Second Michelin Star


“I cried on the phone today with the lady from Michelin. I was just so happy. And you know, being the first woman in the United States to get two, I just feel so honored. I mean, my whole crew should feel honored, and they’ve been fantastic. But I want to be a role model for youngsters, for young women.” — Dominique Crenn on learning that Atelier Crenn was among six Bay Area restaurants to earn two Michelin stars in this year’s guide.
