New York Michelin Guide 2015: a record number of stars
New York, the first non-European guide
New York was the city of choice for the MICHELIN Guide’s first trip outside Europe in 2005. It was here that the renowned inspectors first scoured the streets, scrupulously applying their tough criteria.
New York, gastronomic and cosmopolitan capital
874 restaurants, 60 different types of cuisine, three new establishments boasting a second star, and 17 new 1-star establishments, Brooklyn on the way up… This 2015 version of the New York MICHELIN Guide reveals an amazing cultural melting pot plus the shift of the scene away from the center. In addition to homegrown cooking, Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens offer a plethora of restaurants serving Scandinavian, Mexican, French Canadian, Japanese, Sephardic, Moorish and Thai dishes just to name but a few, testifying to the city’s status as an international gastronomic capital and giving MICHELIN inspectors an experience to sink their teeth into for the past ten years.
South America in early 2015
With the release of the 2015 San Francisco Guide on October 22nd followed by the Chicago Guide on November 12th, Michelin now covers 24 nations across the globe. A new addition will join the collection in early 2015: the Sao Paulo/Rio de Janeiro Guide.
We were really looking forward to celebrating the release of this tenth edition of the New York MICHELIN Guide. It is a city we hold particularly dear, given that it represented the first step in our global ambitions

MICHELIN Guide inspectors: thorough and objective
MICHELIN inspectors carefully select every establishment featured in the guide. They are locally recruited and rigorously trained and always work anonymously. To ensure a uniform, international standard of excellence, they apply the same 5 Michelin criteria to rate the quality of the cuisine wherever they go:
- product quality,
- preparation and flavors,
- the chef’s personality,
- value for money,
- consistency over time and across the entire menu.
So, wherever you happen to be in the world - Paris, New York, or Tokyo, a Michelin star holds the same value.
