Michelin, the European tire maker who publishes the world's most recognized guide for dining out, unveiled its 2015 list of New York's best restaurants. The notoriously anonymous inspectors made their decision.


The oldest and best-known hotel and restaurant reference guide rates the culinary establishments in the following way:


One star      "a very good restaurant in its category"

Two stars    "excellent cuisine, worth a detour"

Three stars "exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey"


Restaurants that reached the highest ranking, three Stars

A meal today goes for $225 per person before wine, tax or tip, and that hardly seems enough. In the pursuit of perfection, there is nothing Chef Ramirez won't do. (GQ)

We love the beauty of it all: the Art Deco room, the windows overlooking the park, the exquisite food, the impeccable service, and the surrounding scene of classy New Yorkers. (ThePurplePassport.Com)

The menus are unique daily, so if you're fortunate enough to experience Per Se on multiple occasions, you'll never have quite the same meal twice. Oh and that view of Central Park doesn't hurt either. (Gothamist)
