The Michelin Guide returned to New York yesterday and dished out 19 new stars – two restaurants were elevated to two-stars, stars while 17 received their first star.
All of New York’s top brass retained their three Michelin stars - Chef’s Table at Brooklyn Fare, Eleven Madison Park, Le Bernardin, Masa and Per Se. There are two new two-star restaurants in the Big Apple, Al Coro and Saga, while L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon, Blanca and Ichimura at Uchu closed down and were removed from the list.
Chef Amanda Cohen’s vegetarian restaurant, Dirt Candy, has won its first Michelin star, yet Brooklyn stalwart Peter Luger lost its lustre and its star. See the new Michelin stars below:
Fonio is the all-but-forgotten African grain that could pep up your cooking and save the world, according to chef Pierre Thiam. Kiki Aranita went to watch him in action, and spoke to him about this ancient ingredient.
