Michelin Releases NY Restaurant Guide

michelinNEW YORK — Michelin has released its newest 2017 guide for the best restaurants in New York. This is the 12th edition for the publication. The new starred restaurants are standouts among the 857 eateries listed in this year’s guide that represent all five of the city’s boroughs and 63 cuisines from around the globe.

Michelin ranks top restaurants from one to three stars with three being the best.

A total of 77 NY restaurants received a coveted star from Michelin, which is also one of the largest tire manufacturers in the world.

New York is one of four cities in the U.S. where Michelin publishes an annual guide. The others include Chicago, San Francisco and Washington D.C.

This year’s selections include a new two star, Aska, which is located in Brooklyn in the shadows of the historic Williamsburg Bridge. As one of 12 Brooklyn starred restaurants on this year’s list, Aska had previously attained a one star in the 2015 edition of the red guide. After renovating and relocating to a more spacious and larger kitchen that seems to further unleash the talents of Chef Frederik Berselius and his skilled team, Aska continues to deliver a contemporary cuisine with Scandinavian influences.

In the ultimate three-star category, Cesar Ramirez’s Chef’s Table at Brooklyn Fare, Daniel Humm’s Eleven Madison Park, Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s Jean-Georges, Eric Ripert’s Le Bernardin, Masa Takayama’s Masa and Thomas Keller’s Per Se all retained their vaunted status.

The selections of all restaurants in the guide are made by Michelin’s anonymous inspectors who dine in the areas regularly. These local inspectors are trained to apply the methods used by Michelin inspectors for many decades throughout the world. This ensures a uniform, international standard of excellence. As a further guarantee of complete objectivity, Michelin inspectors pay all their bills in full, and only the quality of the cuisine is evaluated. To fully assess the quality of a restaurant, the inspectors apply five criteria defined by Michelin: product quality, preparation and flavors, the chef’s personality as revealed through his or her cuisine, value for money, and consistency over time and across the entire menu.

Here is the entire list of 77 starred selections:
