The much-hyped Michelin stars have been released in NYC, and Eleven Madison Park, Atera and Chef’s Table at Brooklyn Fare are the big movers. Chef Cesar Ramirez at Brooklyn Fare moves up to become one of only seven 3-star establishments in the city, and the only one in restaurant-rich Brooklyn; Humm’s EMP jumps from two to three, while Jean Georges, Daniel, Masa, Le Bernardin and Per Se are the other top spots. Atera, a new spot with acclaimed chef Matthew Lightner at the helm, earned two stars in its first showing.
In Brooklyn, scruffier spots like Do Or Dine (a Bed-Stuy spot helmed by Next Top Chef winner Justin Warner) and Roberta’s earned Bib Gourmands, the guide’s section for more up-and-coming and/or affordable restaurants.
As usual, there are some anomalies, with L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon and SHO By Shaun Hergatt snagging two stars each despite L’Atelier’s closure and Hergatt’s bolting the Financial District space.
