2013 NYC Michelin Guide: Multiple UWS Restaurants Receive Stars + Tips For Eating At Them For Less

Monday, October 15th, 2012

The 2013 edition of the highly-regarded New York City Michelin Restaurant Guide went on sale earlier this month — once again, a handful of Upper West Side restaurants received coveted stars.

Of particular note is that of the seven 3-star restaurants in all of NYC, three of them reside on the Upper West Side.

If you’re looking to try any of them, I’ve got some tips below on how to do it while saving a bit of cash (relatively speaking).


Eater has a list of the restaurants that received stars. Here are the UWS recipients (stars in parenthesis):

While the NYC list as a whole has grown from 805 to 896 restaurants, the Upper West Side list is unchanged from 2012.

For what it’s worth, last October former NYT restaurant critic called Per Se “the best restaurant in New York City.”

Anyone been to any of these?

I ate at Dovetail in 2008, a few months after it opened. I can’t remember the specifics, but I DO remember it was damn tasty.

One thing that all these restaurants have in common — beside the Michelin stars — is expensive menus. A couple of tips if you’re looking to try them out at slightly reduced prices:

It’s also worth noting that both A Voce and Dovetail usually participate in NYC Restaurant Week, although I believe only for lunch ($24 prix fixe).

If you’re not in any rush, Winter Restaurant Week 2013 should run from mid-January to mid-February.
