The New York City Restaurants That Earned Michelin Stars For 2018

Michelin has just released the list of New York City eateries that have earned a starry nod from them this year. With annual rankings, retention, and recommendations to those who they deem worthy enough in the realms of culinary contributions, the French tire company has now been offering the world this guide for over a century now.

Each star denotes a specific level of esteem:

One-star means "A very good restaurant in its category" (Une très bonne table dans sa catégorie).

Two-stars meaning "Excellent cooking, worth a detour" (Table excellente, mérite un détour).

And finally, the rare honour of three-stars entails "Exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey" (Une des meilleures tables, vaut le voyage).

This year's list saw a total of six new recipients of a Michelin star. The standout ascension this year was Ginza Onodera, a Tokyo inspired restaurant which was the only listing to be promoted from a one-star rating to two-stars. In an interesting show of statistics, roughly 20% of the 2018 New York guide’s selections are now that of Japanese based cuisine.

Earlier last month, we spoke with Marco Pierre White on his views regarding what Michelin as an institution has become today, expressing some thoughts and feelings on how it has evolved since his tenure as a multiple star recipient. You can read it here.
