The Modern Awarded Two Stars In The MICHELIN Guide New York City 2016

October 2, 2015 Dining No Comments Email Email

Michelin today announced its highly anticipated restaurant selections in the 11th edition of the MICHELIN Guide New York City that goes on sale tomorrow.

This year’s edition of the MICHELIN Guide features 76 restaurants that have earned either one, two, or three Michelin stars, a mark of incredible culinary achievement for the New York City edition of the centuries old travel guide.

Michael Ellis, the International Director of the MICHELIN Guides, comments: “The incredible diversity in the 2016 edition of the MICHELIN Guide New York City highlights the energy and constant evolution of the city’s dining scene.  The impressive number of different styles of cuisine, a total of 61, found throughout all five boroughs confirms New York’s position as one of the world’s most exciting dining destinations.”http://www.tourismlegal.com.au/

In this year’s edition, the list of two-starred welcomes The Modern, which has been promoted from its previous one-star distinction, bringing the total number of two starred restaurants to 10. Under the direction of Chef Abram Bissell, The Modern demonstrated creative and contemporary cuisine, complemented by bright and fresh flavors.

The MICHELIN Guide welcomes 10 newcomers to the one star category for the first time. Among them, four offer remarkable Japanese cuisine. Tempura Matsui turns Japanese tempura style into an art form and incorporates the freshest seafood ingredients.Sushi Yasuda, under the leadership of Chef Mitsuru Tamura and his new team, is producing exemplary sushi at a high level. Cagenand Hirohisa complete this year’s new stars offering top notch Japanese cuisine.

This year’s selection confirms the dynamism of the culinary scene in all boroughs, notably Brooklyn and Queens. Brooklyn earns two new one-starred restaurants with vegetarian-focused Semilla and a sophisticated restaurant serving American cuisine, The Finch.Also joining the ranks of the Michelin stars is Somtum Der in the East Village, which was formerly recognized as Bib Gourmand restaurant. Rounding out the new one-starred restaurants are Gabriel Kreuther, Uncle Boons and Rebelle.

The announcement of the MICHELIN Guide selection follows last week’s news that 133 restaurants in New York earned a Bib Gourmand distinction. The MICHELIN Guide New York City 2016, which lists nearly 900 restaurants, goes on sale tomorrow priced at$18.99.

Thanks to the rigorous MICHELIN Guide selection process that is applied independently and consistently around 24 countries, the MICHELIN guide has become an international benchmark in fine dining. The selections of all restaurants in the guide are made by Michelin’s famously anonymous inspectors who dine in the New York City area regularly. These local inspectors are trained to scrupulously apply the same time-tested methods used by Michelin inspectors for many decades throughout the world. This ensures a uniform, international standard of excellence. As a further guarantee of complete objectivity, Michelin inspectors pay all their bills in full, and only the quality of the cuisine is evaluated. To fully assess the quality of a restaurant, the inspectors apply five criteria defined by Michelin: product quality, preparation and flavors, the chef’s personality as revealed through his or her cuisine, value for money, and consistency over time and across the entire menu. These objective criteria are respected by all MICHELIN Guide inspectors, whether in Japan, the United States, China or Europe. They guarantee a consistent selection so that a star restaurant has the same value regardless of whether it is located in Paris, New York or Tokyo.

Michelin has been a pioneering force in advancing mobility through innovation and excellence in manufacturing quality.  The company patented the pneumatic, or air-filled, tire in the late 1800s.  This was a milestone moment in mobility, permitting automobile owners to travel at great length in a single journey.  Then, in an effort to prompt travelers to enjoy their newfound mobility, the company created guides and detailed maps to steer travelers on their way.  The most famous publication that developed from this is the internationally recognized MICHELIN Guide.
