- The MICHELIN Guide will reveal new culinary gems in New York throughout the year
- Some featured restaurants could be the Bib Gourmands or Stars of tomorrow
NEW YORK, Nov. 10, 2021 — The MICHELIN Guide today announced six new additions to MICHELIN Guide New York City selection. These establishments are highlighted as “New” on guide.michelin.com to help food lovers identify new discoveries prior to the annual announcement of Bib Gourmands and Stars.
"By revealing some of the new additions made by our inspectors throughout the year, we enhance our digital tools to further strengthen the ties that bind us to food lovers," said Gwendal Poullennec, international director of the MICHELIN Guides. “As the restaurant industry continues to face unprecedented challenges and uncertainties, we hope that these regular revelations and updates to the selection throughout the year will provide opportunities to highlight the profession and invite everyone to discover and support the restaurants around them."
Here’s the list of new additions with inspector notes from each restaurant:
This find tucked away at the end of Greenpoint is the passion project of jazz musician Luca Fadda, his wife Giorgia, and their longtime friend Nicola Paganelli. The communal tables encourage lingering, perhaps over the likes of on-site baked breads and fresh pastas. The spaghetti alla carbonara with guanciale, parmesan, and cracked black pepper is a feast.
Les Trois Chevaux
The decadent cooking at The Beatrice Inn, which catapulted Chef Angie Mar to fame, is perfectly translated at her latest venture, which fittingly brings to life fine French cuisine in the form of fish and fowl. What follows are a series of top-shelf plates, including cuisses de grenouille (frog’s legs with crispy artichoke hearts, all set in a wonderful Champagne-beurre blanc).
Chef Yukihiro Takeda is the intellect behind this charming and focused sushi lair. The slim and rustic space welcomes clients with an L-shaped counter. Your meal may open with translucent slices of branzino augmented with vinegared jelly, shiso and daikon. Then comes the nigiri - sublime fatty tuna with a delicate brushing of soy or addictively chewy red snapper dressed with fresh citrus.
This sibling to Torishiki in Tokyo arrives to New York by way of NoHo. Chef/owner Yoshiteru Ikegawa may be found working his skills like a master pianist—turning, fanning, saucing and brushing. It's a pristine workspace and the menu is a tribute to the yakitori tradition. Binchotan charcoal plays as vital a role as the fowl itself, with the aroma becoming one with the space and skewer.
Amidst this setting of weathered wood and stained-glass chandeliers, diners can be found devouring Tex-Mex food with a focus on tacos and inspired cocktails. Flour tortillas are made in house daily and feature in a myriad of deliciously dressed-down creations—from the Migas tacos with simmered tortilla chips to the heartier carne guisada.
63 Clinton St.
Diners can expect a wonderful and surprising meal with an eye towards finesse and this kitchen team treats its top-quality ingredients with refined techniques. Inspired by his time in Arizona as well and at Bar Uchu, Chef Samuel Clonts' cooking includes a taco with soft ajitama, fried potato and trout roe; as well as a handroll full of caviar and rice.
