2014 Michelin Guide reveals 67 starred NYC restaurants

26 Oct

The 2014 Michelin Guide, a red index of fine dining restaurants, just released it’s New York City list today. Sixty-seven restaurants in the Five Boroughs earned one or more of the Michelin star, a mark of excellence, ranking from one (a good place to stop on your journey) to three (worth the journey itself). The criteria for Michelin stars is over 100 years old, meaning the They’re coveted, and once they’re won, the prestige changes the restaurant profoundly, with chefs gaining pressure (or destroying themselves) to hold onto the honor.

The New York division of Eater.com released a fantastic map and visual list of places with the honor.

I’ve only been to four (Casa Mono, wd~50, Public, and The Spotted Pig, which doesn’t really count because I only got a beer and a bar snack). The others were fantastic highlights in the most diverse eating city in America. It’d take a lot of saving to try more, but according to the Guide, it’d be worth every penny. The Michelin Guide also provides a Bib Gouramand list, which sums up places that are great and don’t break the bank.

Looks like I’ve got some eating to do.
