Michelin Guide 2011
The Michelin Guide, 2011

Highly coveted Michelin Stars for 2011 were recently awarded to a group of amazing New York City restaurants, including the highest three-star rating for Daniel, Le Bernardin, Masa, Per Se, and Jean-Georges. Originally started in France in 1900, the Michelin Guide sets the worldwide restaurant standards. The 2011 Michelin Guides covers U.S. restaurants in New York, San Francisco and, for the first time, Chicago.

The Michelin Guide uses anonymous, professional experts to rate restaurants from no stars to three stars. Of the 715 restaurants rated in New York City, there are only 42 one-star restaurants, 10 two-star restaurants, and 5 three-star restaurants. Worldwide there are only 89 three-star Michelin restaurants! The rarity of acquiring even just one Michelin star is an honor, but also an important asset to a restaurant – Le Bernardin reported a 20 to 25% increase in business after it scored a three-star Michelin. Local reviews and ratings might bring in the local eaters, but the Michelin ratings attract crowds from all around the world.
