Michelin Guide Unleashed: New Stars for Marea, Dovetail

New, 98 comments

The Michelin New York 2011 dining guide—which is apparently growing in importance—will hit the shelves tomorrow with its verdicts on which restaurants deserve the guide's coveted stars, but reps have sent over a preview today, revealing the city's big winners and losers. The big news this year is that Perry Street and Insieme (we forgot it was still open!) were the only restaurants to lose a star this year, so big ups to everyone else (sadface JGV) on keeping things copacetic. The three star circle—which includes Daniel, Per Se, Masa, Le Bernardin, and Jean Georges—remains untouched. Meanwhile, the Chef Table at Brooklyn Fare (the first Brooklyn inclusion with a deuce), Marea, the excellent Kajitsu, and Soto joined the two star club. Even with the departure of the famed celeb chef from the restaurant (as if he were there anyway), Gordon Ramsay at the London clung on to its two stars, while Del Posto and Eleven Madison Park (both four star Times restaurants) remain stuck in the one star category.

New additions in the one star category: Dovetail, Aldea, The Breslin, Laut, A Voce Madison, and (the Rhong Tiam of 2011) Forest Hills' Danny Brown Wine Bar & Kitchen. Yes. Forest Hills. See here to compare the list to last year's and see the full Michelin 2011 rankings below.
