Michelin Unexpectedly Adds Six Restaurants to New York Guide
Michelin is the gold standard when it comes to dining.
Six new restaurants added
In an unprecedented move, Michelin has added six new selections during the year to its New York guide: Les Trois Chevaux, the French fine dining restaurant by chef Angie Mar; Le Fanfare, a warm authentic Italian restaurant in Greenpoint; Takeda, an Upper West Side sushi restaurant; Torien, Yoshiteru Ikegawa’s excellent yakitori spot; Yellow Rose, an acclaimed Texas-themed restaurant in the East Village; and 63 Clinton, a US$92 set menu venue run by long-time friends and colleagues, Michelin-starred chef Samuel Clonts and Raymond Trinh.
“As the restaurant industry continues to face unprecedented challenges and uncertainties, we hope that these regular revelations and updates to the selection throughout the year will provide opportunities to highlight the profession and invite everyone to discover and support the restaurants around them,” Gwendal Poullennec, international director of the Michelin Guides, said in a press release.
A small step in the right direction
Michelin has been the gold standard when it comes to restaurant ratings but in recent years has been criticised for being too French, too elitist and stifling creativity. The 24 hour online news cycle has also changed the publishing landscape, with a myriad of new restaurant openings and demand for daily or weekly reviews.
And Michelin's latest update comes with a catch – the company isn’t telling us whether the restaurants in question are receiving single stars, multiple stars, or zero stars, merely that they are being included in its annual guide, reported NY Eater.
