NYC Michelin-Starred Restaurants Open During Coronavirus

From meaty Korean barbecue and upscale omakase to easygoing Thai classics, these are the Michelin-starred restaurants open for pickup, delivery, and outdoor dining right now

View as Map

New Yorkers may not be able to dine at one of the city’s 76 Michelin-starred establishments during the novel coronavirus pandemic — most of them are high-end, and not conducive to delivery and takeout — but more than a dozen restaurants with Michelin stars are keeping business going with takeaway and delivery. Lauded Japanese restaurants like Sushi Noz and Kajitsu are now offering more casual delivery options like maki sets and bento boxes, while others like farm-to-table Blue Hill are getting creative with to-go boxes full of fresh produce or prepared foods.

Some are packaging traditionally high-end experiences like chef’s omakase into DIY home meals, and over in Gowanus, mezcal flights and masa by the pound can be delivered door-to-door. Below, find 31 Michelin-starred restaurants that are still open for business in NYC.
