New York’s 2021 Michelin Bib Gourmand Restaurants, Mapped

Where to find all 131 restaurants awarded Bib Gourmand status this year

View as Map

The 2021 Michelin Bib Gourmands are here, marking the Red Guide’s return to New York City as the pandemic-stricken hospitality industry slowly continues the process of rebuilding itself. These are all restaurants where diners can, in the eyes of the Michelin inspectors, order two courses and a glass of wine or dessert for under $40. The Bibs, considered a serious accolade among some chefs and observers, are deemed a consolation prize by others, as these venues will be ineligible for stars this year.

Here are the 131 restaurants that made the list, including 30 new additions this year.

A number of NYC restaurants are offering indoor dining, outdoor dining, and takeout and delivery service. The type of service is constantly changing, so we recommend checking with each spot ahead of time to confirm the dining setup. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns: for updated information on coronavirus cases in your area, please visit the NYC Health Department’s website. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.
