The Michelin Guide’s Top Picks for Best New York Hotel Restaurants, 2019 Edition

How do you know you’re really in the thick of Fall?

A November election, the end of daylight saving time (fall back!) and the arrival of a new Michelin Guide to New York City restaurants are excellent bellwethers.

Michelin’s red-coated 2019 edition landed yesterday, Election Day 2018. We eagerly scoured it online to see how the city’s hotel restaurants fared. With three categories of stars encompassing 76 restaurants, six were at hotels. That’s nice, but hardly news.

In 2010, the first year Overnight New York started keeping score, seven hotel restaurants made the cut, including tony, now shuttered establishments like Adour Alain Ducasse at the St. Regis, Gordon Ramsay at The London and L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon at the Four Seasons.

Jean-Georges also racked up three stars — the equivalent of an A+ — from the Michelin Guide, the only hotel restaurant so anointed as we reported earlier this month. Read more

Which New York City Hotel Restaurants Made The Cut In Michelin’s 2015 Guide?

October was once a red letter – or, more to the point, red book — month. In years past, Michelin and Zagat published their new crimson-covered guides to New York City eating, often just days apart, in early autumn. No more. This week Michelin deemed 71 restaurants worthy of star quality for 2015. But Zagat is holding back its crowd-sourced results until November, perhaps to shore up all the attention.

What Does the 2010 Michelin Guide Think of NYC Hotel Restaurants?

We don’t own a car, and we definitely don’t spend much time thinking about tires.  But as long-time fans of London’s Bibendum restaurant and follower of the red-coated Michelin restaurant guides, the French tire maker and its well-padded mascot have insinuated themselves into our lives. Read more
