19 New York restaurants have received their first Michelin stars for 2022

Of the first 17 michelin star winners in 2022, only one is located in Brooklyn: Clover Hill in Brooklyn Heights. But, take a thirty-minute M train ride to Manhattan and it’s a direct jab into the new Michelin star range. On the Lower East Side are the modern 63 Clinton and vegetarian Dirt Candy. Slightly to the north, in the East Village, resides Yoshino, for sushi with a theatrical presentation. In Midtown East, New Yorkers (and everyone else – it’s worth a visit) can sit down for a meal at Le Pavillon, which offers haute couture metropolitan French cuisine.

Moving west to Tribeca, sushi lovers can visit Shion 69 Leonard Street, or Icca, which sources its fish exclusively from Japan. The avant-garde L’Abeille combines French cuisine with Japanese cuisine. One White Street is a 19th century townhouse that has been transformed into a modern multi-story wine bar with a tasting menu.

Midtown West is Michelin’s 2022 Asian Cuisine Center. Joomak Banjum started as a pop-up. Mari (Korean for “roll”) takes hand rolls to the next level in Hell’s Kitchen, and Oiji Mi comes from the former owners of Oiji. Continue the sushi crawl at Noz 17 in Chelsea. In Greenwich, there’s Frevo, a French-inspired spot offering a tasting-only menu with a rotating art gallery. People can feast on Indian dishes at Semma, Asian dishes at Red Paper Clip or Yakitori at Torien, the sister restaurant of Torishiki in Tokyo, which also has a Michelin star.
