At the ceremony for the distribution of Michelin stars to restaurants in New York held last night (Thursday), the “Peter Luger” restaurant, the favorite meat establishment of Israelis that has existed since 1887, lost its Michelin star for the first time after 38 years.
The meat restaurant is really not alone, the Italian restaurant “Carbon”, which was defined as the restaurant most loved by celebrities in the world, and loved by the Israeli audience as well, lost its Michelin star.
The loss of the Michelin star of these restaurants, which for many years defined the culinary scene in the Big Apple, did not go quietly. “This year in New York there is a spirit of renewal,” concluded the person in charge of the Michelin guide in the US, who of course maintained anonymity.
On the other hand, many eyebrows were raised that the “Eleven Madison Park” restaurant, which received deadly reviews from the food critic of the “New York Times”, kept its three Michelin stars, even after making the menu vegan and still keeping the price of the tasting meal at $365. In total, there are seventy-three restaurants with Michelin stars in New York, an increase of five restaurants from last year.
