What to Know

  • Michelin released its 2017 edition of its famed restaurant guide on Thursday, which includes 77 New York restaurants
  • Harlem is now home to its first-ever Michelin starred restaurant with the inclusion of Sushi Inoue in the new edition
  • Brooklyn has 12 starred restaurants on the 2017 list, including Scandinavian bar/restaurant Aska

Michelin-starred restaurants are no longer exclusive to downtown Manhattan — 12 Brooklyn eateries and a Harlem sushi spot made the cut for the 2017 MICHELIN Guide New York.

Five Manhattan restaurants, such as the Flatiron District's Eleven Madison Park and Jean-Georges on the Upper West Side, received an elite three-star rating. Included in the five was Le Bernardin, a French bistro in midtown that received its eighth Top Food award in the 2017 Zagat Guide.

Harlem got its first-ever Michelin starred restaurant with Sushi Inoue, which opened last July on Lenox Avenue. The sushi restaurant offers four omakase options from famed Japanese chef Shinichi Inoue.

A new two-star selection is Aska, one of the 12 Brooklyn restaurants to receive a spot in the red guide after renovating and relocating to a more spacious kitchen in Williamsburg. The Scandinavian eatery previously attained a one star in the 2015 edition.

Chelsea's La Sirena and Ushiwakamaru were two of 12 new one-star eateries to grace the new edition of the Michelin Guide. Though it missed the mark for Zagat's 2017 list, Scandinavian restaurant Agern managed to make the cut.  

If you're someone who goes postal for pasta, check out Faro, the new one-star addition in Bushwick that serves a twice-weekly pasta menu and a regular rotation of American and Italian a la carte options. 

A total of 77 New York restaurants received a coveted Michelin star rating in the 2017 edition.
