Michelin has revealed its list of New York City’s starred restaurants for 2018. Following up last week’s look at San Francisco, the Michelin Guide for 2018 NYC eateries awards stars to 72 establishments, including six newcomers.
Most notably, Michelin’s latest guide has stripped a star away from Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s eponymous Central Park West French restaurant. Having held the top accolade of three stars since 2006, Jean-Georges has now fallen to two stars, making it the first restaurant to be downgraded from three to two stars since Daniel Boulud’s Upper East Side spot received the same treatment in 2015.
“Unfortunately, we saw a slow glide downward. It started off with small things . . . and it didn’t get any better,” Michelin Guide director Michael Ellis explained to Eater.
While New York hasn’t racked up a new top tier Michelin spot since 2011, it still boasts more single-starred locations — 56 in total — than any other U.S. region covered by Michelin. On the positive side of the spectrum, Cote, The Clocktower, Bar Uchu, Rouge Tomate, Sushi Ginza Onodera, Satsuki and Sushi Amane have all been brought into the ranks for the first time or received additional stars.
