Michelin Has Awarded 2019 Stars to These New York City Restaurants
While most New Yorkers had their eyes on the election yesterday, Michelin quietly released its own verdicts.
The revered gastronomic guide awarded four new restaurants two stars, and 13 new eateries one star. There are no new three-starred establishments—there haven't been any additions to the existing set of five since 2012. That might seem low, but considering that there are only 120 restaurants in the world with three-star status, it isn't all that surprising.
Among the new
A 2019 two-star commendation came too late for Tetsu Basement, a $350-per-head kaiseki spot that closed a little over a month ago. Tetsu Basement's Chef Masayoshi Takayama can't be too upset though, as his flagship restaurant Masa still has its coveted three-star rating.
And for those who missed out on Tetsu Basement, there are plenty of other newly-starred Japanese eateries to try: Nakazawa, Kosaka, Noda, Okuda, and Sushi Noz
While foodies and restauranteurs analyze the results, bemoaning perceived snubs and unpopular winners, most New Yorkers can sit content. Any way you slice it, there's a lot of good food in this city
