(CNN) -- Michelin Travel Publications rolled out the results for New York City's 2015 Michelin Guide today, and 73 area restaurants earned one or more of the guide's highest honor - the Michelin star.

The Michelin Guide, or Le Guide Michelin, originated in France in 1900 and has since offered its notes, recommendations and ratings on restaurants and hotels in select cities around the globe. It published its first New York City edition in 2005.

World's 50 best restaurants for 2014

The guide's recommendations are put together by a team of "famously anonymous" inspectors, who all must undergo strict training and sign confidentiality agreements before they can file reports on their assigned establishments.

The ratings for the guide are as follows:

Three stars -- "Exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey. One always eats here extremely well, sometimes superbly. Distinctive dishes are precisely executed, using superlative ingredients."

Two stars -- "Excellent cuisine, worth a detour. Skillfully and carefully crafted dishes of outstanding quality."

One star -- "A very good restaurant in its category. A place offering cuisine prepared to a consistently high standard."

Best restaurants in America are...

Good info, thanks.

I searched a few of them. very fancy and expensive. there might be a few gems in there though.


Marley - 10/1/2014 at 05:04 PM

If they're Michelin-rated, you can rest assured they'll be expensive and there are lots of places you can get great food in much cheaper places. Of course if you're coming to NYC from elsewhere, maybe you want to splurge. I used to live near Sushi of Gari and I ate there once. It was amazing. I remember some delicious pumpkin tempura that really stands out. I've had dessert from Momofuku Milk Bar but I haven't been to the restaurant itself.

Undoubtedly, big Nick's would have been included if it was still open...


mikesolo - 10/1/2014 at 07:22 PM

That pic makes me miss Big Nick's all the more!

The list provided is certainly on the high end side and there are sure winners included. PLENTY of great options on the more resonable side are also available of course as this is NYC!!!

Tessa and Red Farm are recent additions to the Beacon neighborhood and both are good choices.

The only people able to afford places like Le Bernadin after these ticket prices are the band itself.

A real New Yorkers guide to eating? A hot dog for less than $2 at Gray's Papaya on Broadway and 72nd street.

Don't forget you can get Gray's dogs dressed the way you like them for no extra.


LeglizHemp - 10/2/2014 at 12:53 AM

hey i just posted this in case someone wanted to do something special on their trip. there are lots of other cool places to dine in NYC, i may go to nathan's at coney island. i've been to NYC twice in the last 40 yrs and both times will be this year, so i'm gonna enjoy myself and be a tourist.


mikesolo - 10/2/2014 at 01:59 AM

If you go to Coney Island see if the Freak Show performances are scheduled (sword swallowing/contortionist/fire eater/etc). My wife and I went this summer and it was a blast. As mentioned above the Gray's Papaya hot dogs on 72nd and Broadway are also excellent!

If you are in the city on a night when the Brothers are not playing be sure to check out The Iridium (51st Street & Broadway), IMO The Iridium is NYC's best live music venue. They offer live music 7 nights a week with good food, incredible service, and a great vibe. Be sure to check it out if you get the chance


If you are looking for an affordable place to eat near The Beacon try Chirping Chicken at 77th Street & Amsterdam Ave. They offer a lot more than chicken on their menu. It's usually crowded, but they have an incredibly efficient staff. Nothing fancy, but good food at fair prices.

NYC is a center for great food around the world and people will probably be in town for more than one meal. There's more to eat here than hot dogs! Michelin-reviewed restaurants are expensive, but you can get good food for cheap, too. (If you want a quick cheap bite near the Beacon, I really enjoy the pizza at Freddy & Pepper's. I go there before almost every show.) If you have time to travel around, though, there are great places to eat in every neighborhood. I used to live in Hell's Kitchen and that area is practically drowning in good restaurants, and most of them are inexpensive. Mexican, Indian, Thai, Turkish, Italian... I never did get to the Afghan joint, but still.

Not to mention "Hooters" ...


TheGuru - 10/2/2014 at 07:03 PM

No Gray's Papaya on that list?

I don't think that's their bag. It's not a list of restaurants, it's a list of places that got Michelin stars. If you do like Gray's Papaya, you should know there is only one location left- the one on Broadway and 72nd. The other two locations have closed in the last few years. Papaya King, which is older (Gray's Papaya might've ripped them off) is also still around. There's also a place called Papaya Dog.

You may wish to look up the Bib Gourmand restaurants in New York. It's a Michelin category of excellent restaurants where you can get two meals and a glass of wine for under $40 bucks. My restaurant in Chicago made the list a few times and I must say we are in good company.

Nathan's in Coney Island IS the shizzle lol. Many a late night growing up in Brooklyn was spent at Nathan's and I still go when possible.


TuffJew - 10/7/2014 at 03:56 AM
