An Introduction to ... Like A Local

“In your hometown, we’re sure you have your favorite places to eat, drink, celebrate, or relax. You probably know the best place to shop, the most beautiful spot to watch the sunset, and the most intimate of cafes to enjoy coffee with a friend. Now, imagine you could learn this kind of information about the places you travel before you even get there. With Michelin and Peter Greenberg’s “Like a Local” series, you’ll know where to go and what to do to ensure the best travel experience, exactly as if you were a local yourself.”

More than a century ago, the founders of our company published the first Michelin Guide as a way to promote driving and give motorists practical information about where to service and repair their cars, find quality accommodations and a good meal. It was a way to get more people driving and help them feel more confident doing it. This part of the business has grown into an entire travel and lifestyle category that now includes travel guides, maps, and of course the MICHELIN hotel & restaurant Guide which has become the global benchmark in gourmet dining.



  • New Orleans
  • Q: One of the most famous (and busiest) jazz places in New Orleans is the House of Blues, but where can I find a really authentic jazz venue?
  • A: Instead of going to the very popular House of Blues, try Preservation Hall. Located on St. Peter Street in the French Quarter, the location is famous for its authentic old-school syncopated jazz and is home to the renowned Preservation Hall Jazz Band. Musicians are the cream of the crop—veterans in their 80s mentor the younger musicians, and often the younger performers are the children of the older ones. Opened in 1961, the Hall was originally created to preserve the distinctive New Orleans jazz style that was losing popularity to rock and roll at the time. Shows start filling up at 8:00 every night and seating is limited. Once the rickety little chairs are gone, they’re gone, and you’ll be left standing squished in the back, on tip toes catching quick glimpses of the musicians. So, get there very early if you want a good spot.
