The 2017 New York Michelin List of Starred Restaurants 


Three Stars
Chef’s Table at Brooklyn Fare
Eleven Madison Park – was too full of themselves (just how long can you hear them go on about one dish) but heard they calmed it down with their reopening
Le Bernardin  – my personal favorite
Masa – might be the most expensive restaurant in NY, over my budget
Per Se – heard pretty negative things about the service and the long, drawn out meal


Two Stars
Aquavit – a sophisticated restaurant, a bit stiff for me (but great food) 
Daniel – love dining here
Jean-Georges – great dining experience
Marea – best Italian seafood in the city
The Modern – perfect end after a visit to the museum 
Sushi Ginza Onodera
