These are New York's Four-Star Restaurants

Per Se by Krieger

Sushi Nakazawa has now joined the ranks of the four-star club, bringing the total number of restaurants in that coveted group up to six. The last time a new restaurant made this list was in 2010, when Sam Sifton reviewed Del Posto, and a restaurant hasn't landed four stars in its first review since Frank Bruni reviewed Per Se in 2004 (Del Posto and Eleven Madison Park both got two or three stars the first time around).

In his tenure as New York Times restaurant critic, the only other time Pete Wells has awarded four stars was when he upheld Le Bernardin's previous ranking last year. There was also, of course, the notorious Daniel demotion. After all that, here's a look at New York's current four-star restaurants:

· Per Se: Frank Bruni, 9/8/04 (first hit the list); Sam Sifton, 10/11/11 (most recent)
· Le Bernardin: Bryan Miller, 3/28/1986 (first hit the list); Frank Bruni, 3/16/05 (second review); Pete Wells, 05/22/12 (most recent)
· Jean Georges: Ruth Reichl, 6/6/1997 (first hit the list); Frank Bruni, 4/19/06 (most recent)
· Eleven Madison Park: Frank Bruni, 8/12/09 (most recent)
· Del Posto: Sam Sifton, 9/28/2010 (most recent)
· Sushi Nakazawa: Pete Wells, 12/10/2013 (most recent)
