Michelin awards new stars in New York

Michelin has handed out new stars in New York, with Atera, a naturalistic restaurant in Tribeca, being the only establishment promoted to two stars.

Chef Matthew Lightner offers a three-hour tasting menu at Atera featuring dishes incorporating edible rocks, organs, shells and coal. He opened the restaurant in March this year, having previously cooked at Noma in Copenhagen and Mugaritz in Spain. There are now seven two-star restaurants in New York.

There was no change in the top tier, with Brooklyn Fare, Eleven Madison Park, Daniel, Le Bernardin, Jean Georges, Per Se and Masa all retaining their three stars.

Nine restaurants celebrated their first Michelin star, including the New York outpost of Chinese restaurant group Hakkasan. Other British chefs also maintained their stars, with Gordon Ramsay at the London holding onto its two stars and April Bloomfield's restaurants, the Spotted Pig and the Breslin, retaining their one-star-status.

New York now has a total of 52 starred restaurants, with remaining newcomers including Aquavit, Blanca, Café China, 15 East, Jungsik, Lan Sheng, The NoMad and Torrisi Italian Specialties.

Overall, there are 896 restaurants listed in Michelin's 2013 New York guide across the five boroughs of Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island, including 66 with stars and 126 with Bib Gourmands.

Michelin's New York guide is the first of three US guides to be released, with San Francisco Bay Area & Wine Country due to be launched on 24 October and Chicago on 13 November.
