Here Are The 2020 Michelin Stars In New York City And Westchester

Now that we can smell the pumpkin spice in the air, it’s time for Michelin to release its annual starred guide to New York’s restaurants. The Michelin Star Revelation, which took place last night at the Ziegfeld Ballroom, saw hundreds of attendees gathered in elegant frocks to celebrate the talented chefs and their teams. Guests sipped on cocktails, toasted with champagne and indulged in bites from the starred restaurants, such as Atomix and L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon. The atmosphere electrified when the chefs took to the stage, some reclaiming their stars and, of course, the new inductees who gained a star or two. This year, the list features two new restaurants in the two-star category and eight new one-star establishments. Here are all the stars in the newest edition of the 2020 MICHELIN Guide New York City and Westchester County.

Three-star Restaurants: Exceptional Cuisine, Worth a Special Journey

All the three-starred restaurants kept their stars this year and we couldn’t be happier for them, especially since The World’s 50 Best Restaurants announced that no restaurant that has held the title of the best restaurant in the world can hold it again—sorry Eleven Madison Park.

Atomix: Traditional dishes like jeon and banchan are brilliantly reinterpreted with this elegant and contemporary take on Korean dining. The level of detail from chef Junghyun Park and his wife Ellia is astounding at this luxe townhouse dining room.

Blue Hill at Stone Barns: Chef Dan Barber’s onslaught of clever bites of mostly vegetables are plucked from the property’s greenhouses and working farm. The kitchen serves excellent cuisine with a distinct personality in its stunning dining room that was formerly a dairy barn.
