Tomorrow evening, the Michelin Guide will drop its list of New York City star ratings for 2016. The company's reps began calling restaurants to inform them of their inclusion today, and the chefs and restaurateurs of this city have been sharing the good news on social media. We already knew that Eleven Madison Park is getting three stars in this year's guide, and Semilla is making its debut with one sparkler.  Here are more updates from around the city:

— Casa Enrique in Long Island City retains its star:

— Alex Petry, the general manager of The Finch in Clinton Hell, sends word that chef Gabe McMackin "received a call from the Michelin Guide today to let us know that we will be receiving one star in their upcoming guide."  This restaurant opened ten months ago.

— Just like the previous two years, The Musket Room receives a star:

Take Root in Carroll Gardens Tweeted then deleted a message about its star rating: "Didn't realize we were all sharing our Michelin that case..we are humbly honored to have received a star again this year!!"

— Pok Pok's Andy Ricker shares the good news:

So, now I am definitely attending this one. ⭐️

— And a host at Betony confirms that the restaurant received one star this year, just as it did last year.

Stay tuned for more Michelin Madness tomorrow, and if you hear of any other star recipients, let us know.

UPDATE, 11:30 p.m.: Tribeca champ Batard also retains its star:

Thanks @michelininspectors for the #michelinstar !!
