The star rankings for the 2019 Michelin Guide New York City have been announced. Le Coucou and Sushi Nakazawa, both highly praised by Pete Wells in The New York Times, each earned one star, the first time they have been elevated to this ranking. Ichimura at Uchu, Gabriel Kreuther and L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon received two, bringing the total number of two-star restaurants to 14. Tetsu Basement was also awarded two stars. It will appear in the guide, but it closed and was reconceived after the guide went to press. Atomix, Bouley at Home, Claro, Jeju Noodle Bar, Kosaka, Le Grill de Joël Robuchon, Noda, Okuda, Oxomoco, Sushi Noz and Tuome were also awarded one star. The list of restaurants with three Michelin stars (Chef’s Table at Brooklyn Fare, Eleven Madison Park, Le Bernardin, Masa and Per Se) remains unaltered. But the leadership of the Michelin guides globally (there are 32 of them) has changed: Gwendal Poullennec, who has been at Michelin since 2003, became international director in September, replacing Michael Ellis. Mr. Poullennec remarked that since the New York edition was first introduced in 2004, the number of starred restaurants has gone to 75 from 39. The guide, $18.99, goes on sale Thursday.
