The Michelin Guide is the longest running, and most established, restaurant ratings service in the world. It started in France in 1900, and now publishes 24 guides around the world. London has its own guide, as does Tokyo, Chicago, San Francisco, Germany and Spain. France takes its little red book the most seriously, and rightly so. It’s the O.G. and most influential in a country that counts dining out as a national pastime. And this afternoon, New York City took its turn. Here are the results.

Sep 22, 2014 10:00 am

In a tiny kitchen in brownstone Brooklyn restaurant Bergen Hill, chef Andrew D'Ambrosi is running one of the most-inventive seafood restaurants in America. Though constrained by limited space and gear more fit for a Central Park snack bar than mini Mugaritz (the setup includes four induction burners, a panini press and small ice cream machine), the former Le Cirque chef and Top Chef  scene stealer is composing dishes made with extraordinary flavor combos (Mayweather 1-2s) and personality. Here's one of them.

Sep 18, 2014 1:00 pm

Operating a restaurant is no easy task. Between space, equipment and personnel issues, it’s a straight uphill battle from day one. Stories of high-profile restaurant closings hit the newswire almost every month, with well-known and popular establishments regularly closing their doors for good. Simply put, it’s a big achievement when restaurants make it through a year or two – let alone five or ten – in New York City. And that’s exactly what these six city staples have managed to do.

Sep 10, 2014 9:00 am

Autumn is one of the busiest times of the year for restaurants, when jetsetting Manhattanites (and Brooklynites) return from summer travels and settle back into their 'hoods, often in search of great food. New establishments look to right after Labor Day to open their doors for the first time, so there are plenty of restaurant openings to keep an eye on each fall. While covering the newcomers in our annual Fall Preview series and while galivanting around as we're wont to do, here are a few trends we picked up on.

Grabbing a quality but quick lunch in the Gramercy/Flatiron area can be somewhat difficult. Sure, there’s no shortage of options and the original New York locations of popular chains Shake Shack and Sweetgreen are nearby. There’s just that whole 45-minute wait time think to worry about.

Located in Madison Square Park, the semi-annual market opened for its sixth season on Friday.

Aug 27, 2014 3:00 pm

“Right now we’re off to the races,” says George Mendes with the sound of clanging in the background. He’s standing at the Chelsea — or maybe we'll call it NoMad — construction site that will house his new, un-named restaurant scheduled to open later in the fall. It’s been long anticipated that Mendes, a Portuguese-American chef who just celebrated five years at his well-regarded Flatiron restaurant Aldea, would expand into a more casual style.
