Michelin Announces NYC’s 2018 Starred Restaurants

If there’s a list to end all lists, Michelin’s 2018 New York City starred restaurants might be the one to do it (until 2019’s list comes out). The mecca for eating every single type of food you can think of, New York City’s most-valued list is now 20% Japanese restaurants. Unfortunately for NYC, according to this new list it is no longer the fine dining capital of the world. With only five fine dining restaurants on the list this year, San Francisco has taken the prize with seven fine dining restaurants on their Michelin list. This is due to Jean-Georges — widely considered one of New York’s best French spots since it opened two decades ago — is no longer one of the world’s finest restaurants, according to the Michelin Guide.

Here is a key of sorts that let’s people know exactly what these stars mean:

One star – “high quality cooking, worth a stop”

Two stars – “excellent cooking, worth a detour;”

Three stars – “exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey.”
