Washington, D.C. chef Tim Ma received a Bib Gourmand from the Michelin Guide for his Chinese-French fusion resto Kyirisan. Like the coveted Michelin star, the Bib Gourmand is bestowed on a restaurant by a Michelin inspector for being a good value.

On June 14, the "Kyirisan Takeover" went down at Ravello at the Four Seasons with Ma and Ravello executive sous chef Ryan Schelling devising a creative lineup of Chinese-Italian fusion. That's right...Chinese-Italian fusion.
