Michelin has announced its annual ranking of restaurants in New York City.

Notably, Jean Georges, Jean-Georges Vongerichten's flagship restaurant inside the Trump International Hotel, was downgraded from three stars to two. It had previously held the top honor of three stars since 2006 when the New York Michelin guide was first established.

“It was a difficult decision for us to make,” Michael Ellis, director of the Michelin guide, told Eater today. “Unfortunately, we saw a slow glide downward. It started off with small things... and it didn’t get any better. It was kind of on cruise control.”

“Our hope is that he’ll be able to get that third star back very quickly,” Ellis continued.

Even with Jean Georges's downgrade, New York City still has the most Michelin stars of any U.S. city, though it no longer has the most three-starred restaurants. That honor belongs to the San Francisco Bay Area.

Six restaurants make their one-star debut this year, including Satsuki, Sushi Amane, Bar Uchu, Cote, The Clocktower, and a new iteration of Rouge Tomate; Sushi Ginza Onodera was upgraded from one star to two.
