Michelin, the French tire company that also has a stranglehold on ranking the world’s best restaurants with its annual Michelin Guide, will make a visit to Dallas.

The organization won’t be handing out any stars in the Big D, but will head to Downtown restaurant Bullion for a six-course tasting dinner with chef Bruno Davaillon, who earned a Michelin star in 2008 at Alain Ducasse’s Mix in Las Vegas. The event set for Sunday, November 10 at Bullion, is part of the Michelin on the Road dinner series, which is making its way to Texas for the first time. At the dinner, Davaillon and Ricchi Sanchez will be joined by chef Michael Cimarusti, the executive chef at two-Michelin-star Los Angeles restaurant Providence.

For those who are unaware, the Michelin Guide is a restaurant guidebook that awards up to three stars to top-notch restaurants across the globe, mainly in large cities like New York, London, and San Francisco. As Eater New York critic Ryan Sutton notes, Michelin only awards stars to restaurants in cities where it publishes a guide, and Texas has never been on that list. There isn’t a single Dallas restaurant that has ever received a Michelin star, and Davaillon is one of only a scant few chefs in the city who have held major roles at Michelin-starred establishments.

Tickets for the Michelin on the Road dinner are now available via Tock, and they’ll set curious diners back $195 each.
