Michelin Guide New York

Michelin is making news in New York this morning. The famous red guide finally published its first ever guide in the US, specifically for the New York market. To some, Michelin has been generous, awarding the highly-lauded three-star rating to four restaurants in New York: Le Bernadin, Per Se, Jean-George, and, of course, Alain Ducasse. For others, some glaring omissions or perceived snub would likely rub them the wrong way. The ever popular Babbo with only one star rating is one example. The wonderful Blue Hill without even a star to its name is yet another.

I don't have much time now to comment on this so I'm just going to include the entire list here and you girls and boys can form your own opinion. As for me, I'm in Lausanne this morning, on our hotel balcony overlooking the serene lake. Last night was a lovely meal at Philipe Rochat -a non-controversial three star if there ever was one. This afternoon will be Monaco, for tomorrow night at the Louis XV -yet another one of Alain Ducasses outposts. After that we will be shopping and cooking with our friends for a few days in Nice. New York is far, far away from my mind.
