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

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


    - B


    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.

    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
    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.

    Jungsik will be two in a couple of years, I think. Maybe next year. Really fantastic food.

    Atera at 2 stars and the idea of Jungsik ever receiving 2 stars is an abomination

    Maybe the inspector like Atera because you saw her in the bathroom? :D

    I'd give her vagina 3 stars for creativity and uniqueness but no stars on consistency or quality of service.

    LOL @ 2 okay Chinese restaurants that deliver to my office on Seamlessweb getting 1 star each. Picholine has been closed for a while.

    Seems like the key to getting 2 or 3 stars is long 3-4 hour 10-22 course meals.

    Gordon Ramsey, Gilt, Aureole, who the hell eats there?

    I'd say EMP/Blue Hill probably should get two stars each; Jean Georges and Le Bernadin three. And that is about it.

    And for cities with more than 2-3 - Tokyo is probably it. Better French than Paris (better everything than everywhere)
