The Michelin Guide has released its 2018 ratings for New York City and it is not all good news.
Within a year, the number of New York City Michelin-starred restaurants has dropped from 77 to 72. Jean-Georges Vongerichten's flagship restaurant in Manhattan lost its three-star status, dropping to two stars for the first time since the Michelin Guide was established in 2006.
No local restaurant upgraded to the three-star category. New York now has only five three-star restaurants, falling behind San Francisco, which have seven.
In happier news, sushi is up in 2018. Only one restaurant was promoted to the two-star category. Sushi Ginza Onodera, by chef Masaki Saito, jumped from one to two stars. Three out of six new one-star restaurants serve Japanese cuisine.
