It’s a highly anticipated moment in one of the world’s culinary capitals. New York City restaurants are celebrating the release of the Michelin Guide 2016 today. The roster of three-star restaurants remains unchanged from last year, with six restaurants holding onto their trio of stars (which in Michelin’s book means “exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey”).
*Chef's Table at Brooklyn Fare, César Ramirez
*Eleven Madison Park, Daniel Humm
*Jean-Georges, Jean-Georges Vongerichten
*Le Bernardin, Eric Ripert
*Masa, Masa Takayama
*Per Se, Thomas Keller
In the two-star category (meaning “excellent cuisine, worth a detour”), The Modern—helmed by chef Abram Bissell—was the only new addition. These Michelin two-starred restaurants include Aquavit, atera, Blanca, Daniel, Ichimura, Jungsik, Marea, The Modern, and Momofuku Ko Soto.
There were ten new restaurants added to the one-star category, including Tempura Matsui, Sushi Yasuda, Cagen, Hirohisa, Somtum Der, Uncle Boons, Rebelle, Semilla and Finch. For the full list, visit http://michelinmedia.com
