When the reputable list of Michelin star restaurants was released, we took a look at real estate near the city's five 3-star restaurants When the reputable list of Michelin star restaurants was released, we took a look at real estate near the city's five 3-star restaurants
It may sound funny to have a tire company be the defining source for restaurant recommendations, but hear us out: Starting in 1900, the Michelin guide started as a free resource for motorists, offering advice on cars and places to stay on long drives. But as time passed, it started to recommend restaurants and rate the excellence of the kitchens. The star system we know today was in place a short time later, and the guide was soon devoted completely to dining. American restaurants have only been eligible to earn Michelin stars since 2005, but the rating quickly became the ultimate mark of prestige for restaurateurs and diners alike.

The full list of Michelin stars for New York restaurants in 2022 has just been announced in a ceremony co-hosted by Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka. The five restaurants with three stars, or those "worth a special journey," held onto their status - notably so for Eleven Madison Park, which pivoted to a meatless menu after reopening in the wake of the pandemic. Eleven restaurants were dropped from the one-star list ("worth a stop"), Peter Luger among them, but 17 new ones were added to it. Two new restaurants were added to the two-star list ("worth a detour").

Gourmands come from all over the city, and indeed the world, to enjoy three-star restaurants. But for residents of the following buildings, the journey is no greater than one mile, or even an elevator ride for some lucky people. We take a look at the restaurants and select listings nearby.
