Michelin-Starred NYC Restos

The debut red Guide Michelin for New York City is nothing less than a celestial celebration of New York City dining. 39 restos were awarded stars, a total eclipsed only by Paris (which has 72 Michelin-starred restos).

Awarded three stars are: Le Bernardin, Alan Ducasse, Jean Georges, and Per Se. It must be noted that Ducasse now has three Michelin-three-star restos.

Two stars: Daniel, Masa, Bouley, and Danube.

Some of the one stars: Spotted Pig, Saul, Babbo, Gramercy Tavern, Peter Luger, Café Boulud, Café Gray, Craft, Nobu, Etats-Unis, and WD-50.

Too bad for New York’s other deserving restaurants which didn’t get a star, or those which feel they ought to get more than just one or two. Oh well, there’s always next year. I understand the Michelin inspectors are already making their tours for the next guide.
