Against the backdrop of a pandemic that has shuttered at least a thousand restaurants, Michelin’s anonymous released their 2021 star ratings for New York City earlier this spring. Not a single restaurant that remained open — or temporarily closed — was dropped or downgraded from the list of starred selections, while just seven new venues were awarded stars. Michelin remains the only major food publication awarding stars for the time being.

Here is a rundown of all restaurants on the list, including whether they’re open for outdoor dining or temporarily shuttered. There were 68 starred restaurants on Michelin’s list and on our original map; Noda has been dropped from this map as it is closed and relocating.

Health experts consider dining out to be a high-risk activity for the unvaccinated; the latest data about the delta variant indicates that it may pose a low-to-moderate risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial transmission. The latest CDC guidance is here; find a COVID-19 vaccination site here.
