Michelin Red Guide for New York Out Nov. 1

Michelin’s famous red guide to restaurants and hotels now includes New York City in its coverage with its new Michelin Guide New York City 2006, which is due for public release tomorrow, Nov. 1st.

Eagerly awaited is which New York restaurants got the coveted rosettes. Its certain, though, that “at least one” resto is going to be awarded three stars, according to Jean-Luc Naret, Michelin’s director of publications. The short list includes: La Bernardin, Daniel, Per Se, and Ducasse.

It will be interesting to view the response of both the public and the managements of restaurants and hotels to the French publication’s entry in New York City. I think both sides will learn and benefit much from this coverage. It’s certainly a good thing for New York as Michelin validates what many have already known for a while: New York is second to none in terms of both quality and variety of restaurants in the world.
