Here are NYC’s 2021 Michelin-starred restaurants

Seven newcomers are in the mix.

After suspending stars last year, Michelin’s famed, feared and revered inspectors were back at it for 2021’s awards season. The work, of course, changed. Inspectors navigated health and safety regulations right along with the rest of the dining public. They took notice of restaurants’ adaptability. Street seating was “fair game.” But ultimately, Michelin’s paramount objective, to consider the food on the plate, remained the same. 

Today, Michelin announced 68 star awards in New York City and Westchester County across 58 cuisine categories. There are seven new one-star restaurants in NYC, and Westchester County’s Blue Hill at Stone Barns was pinned with Michelin’s first green star, which recognizes “an unwavering commitment to sustainable gastronomy.”  

Inspectors lauded one-star newcomers Tsukimi, for chef Takanori Akiyama’s “deeply personal interpretation of a proper kaiseki meal,” Rezdôra, for chef Stefano Secchi’s “quality and execution,” Jua, who’s Chef Hoyoung Kim “expertly weaves Western influences into his Korean prix-fixe menu,” Don Angie, where married chef partners Angie Rito and Scott Tacinelli “handle bold flavors with creativity and finesse,” Kochi, for chef Sungchul Shim’s “expertly grilled skewers, Korean ingredients and bold, exciting compositions,” Vestry, where chef Shaun Hergatt’s menu “exudes elegance and the ethos continues to be a marriage of Asian ingredients with classic French technique,” and Francie, where chef Chris Cipollone “excels at balancing intriguing flavors and textures.”

Returning three-star restaurants include the soon-to-be plant-based Eleven Madison Park, Chef's Table at Brooklyn Fare and Per Se. Atomix, Daniel and Ichimura at Uchū ann all retained two stars. And Crown Shy, Claro, Oxomoco, Sushi Nakazawa and Gramercy Tavern each kept one star.
