    Babbo is conspicuously absent. I think Dovetail deserves a star, and the deco/setting should set back Le Bernardin to 2 stars.

    I remembering seeing his restaurant in a NY Times story about the city's best hamburgers. That's worth something.

    It takes a lot of skill knowing when to flip a steak.

    This list would make the most sense if you deducted one star from each category.

    Daniel gets the bump apparently on the basis of an unimpressive (but needed) remodel job?

    Michelin ratings are about as worthless as Zagats or yelp or JD Powers....

    Don't know of a city on planet with more than 2-3 useful restaurants (despite claims of locals or travel addicts)

    Would argue Bernardin consistently does best grub in town; convenient locale to Midtown offices

    Daniel has the most powerful crowd of regulars for both wkday business dinners or daily grub...prob more billionaires in room every nt than any restaurant in world....OK not great food...convenient to relevant offices and homes

    Per Se is just Laundry East but with far weaker produce (no access to CA produce in NYC) and same lack of creativity....too long a format for most business dinners...and/or non-hard core eaters

    Anything south of Bernardin is too B&T or infested w/penniless yuppies or underemployed trust fund kids

    I could not disagree more. I gave it two solid chances (I really wanted a decent local neighborhood destination without dropping below CPS -not counting JG and CC crew), and was seriously disappointed both times. The decor is also seriously lacking imo.

    Just checked... why did Etats-Unis close? Oh, the date pudding.... [​IMG]

    An acquaintance of mine is now a poissonier at Corton. She says it is really legit. Too legit.

    I think it is also fairly well known (or at least was a few years back when they started awarding Michelin stars in NYC) that the criteria for earning stars is much more lenient in the US than in Europe.

    the only two I have been to are Luger's and Saul...Luger's steak is fantastic IMO but if service/decor have anything to do with the awarding of stars I'd hesitate to award one. Saul was very very good, but when I think if Michelin stars I presume something truly magnificent. I'd go to Saul again in a heart beat, but I have had food that was just as good elsewhere. I was at The Modern for drinks only, it looked nice.

    IN SEASON... I would put NJ produce against NOCAL any day of the week and twice on Sunday. Jersey Sweet Potatoes, Peaches, Corn, and especially Tomatoes are some of the best in the world.
