The Michelin Guide's 2019 List Of New York City Restaurants Is Finally Here

Photographed by Jacq Harriet.
Yesterday, Michelin, the name behind the world's most respected restaurant rating system, announced all the New York City spots on its 2019 guide. 17 establishments gained stars this year including, Gabriel Kreuther, Ichimura at Uchü, L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon, Tetsu Basement, Atomix, Bouley at Home, Claro, Jeju Noodle Bar, Kosaka, Le Coucou, Le Grill de Joël Robuchon, Noda, Okuda, Oxomoco, Sushi Nakazawa, Sushi Noz, and Tuome.
Though all these restaurants are no doubt deserving of the honor, it should be noted that not one of the 17 spots is helmed by a female chef. Also worth noting is that Babbo, Casa Mono, and Del Posto, all of which are owned by Mario Batali's restaurant group, remain on the one-star list. Though it was announced in an April New York Times article that Batali would fully divest from his restaurant group after being publicly accused of sexual assault and misconduct, that process is, according to GrubStreet, still underway.
