Whether you’re traveling or simply looking for a good place to grab a bite, the Michelin Guide is always a must-have. This week, the Michelin 2013 guide of the best places to eat in New York City was released and there’s a bunch of restaurants you need to try.
Today, Michelin released the results of its ratings survey for restaurants in New York City. 66 restaurants received stars from Michelin Awards, while others kept their top ranking the same as last year. Chinese, Korean or Japanese Asian inspired cuisine restaurants are this year’s highlights in Michelin’s guide of the best places to eat in NYC.
“We have a lot of Asian restaurants which upped their ante. They are becoming more adventurous and creative” said Michael Ellis, international director of the Michelin Guides. “They are able to deliver new versions on old dishes that have really caught our attention” Ellis told Reuters.
So if you’re up for an exotic taste, Soto, Momofuku Ko, Café China, Hakkasan, Lan Sheng, 15 East and Jungkin were given stars these years, joining the other 11 Asian places to eat, already in the guide.
For those of you looking for three-star restaurants in Michelin’s 2013 guide, unfortunately there are no new additions to the list. New York City has in 2013 the same three-star seven restaurants as in 2012. Jean Georges, Chef’s Table, Per Se, Daniel, Le Bernardin, Eleven Madison Park and Masa.
But if you’re looking for a good place to eat in New York that won’t cost you a week’s worth of TV dinners, the Michelin 2013 Guide of the best restaurants in New York has 14 other places with meals under $25 to check out. “…our feeling is that people should have a choice when they dine out. But I also understand the economics these day” said Michael Ellis.
There are 896 restaurants in the Michelin 2013 guide of the best restaurants in New York City, with nine getting the honor for the first time. According to Michelin, the 896 restaurants in the guide are all across New York and feature 61 cuisines.
