Michelin Guide 2010 is out: Daniel awarded top rating of 3 stars

This blog visitted Daniel recently and had a wonderful dinner, pictured above. So we weren't all that surprised to find out that, at last, the restaurant has deservedly entered the pantheon of 3-star restaurants in the newly-released 2010 edition of the Michelin Guide. As the site Caterersearch.com noted, Daniel

"has joined Jean Georges, Le Bernardin, Masa and Per Se in the guide’s list of top eateries bringing New York’s three-star restaurants to five.

Meanwhile fellow French chef Alain Ducasse’s Adour restaurant at Manhattan’s St Regis hotel has lost a star and dropped from two- to one-Michelin-star status. (...) Gordon Ramsay’s eponymous restaurant at the London hotel in Manhattan’s Midtown retained its two stars, despite recently reported problems of food hygiene."

Here is the complete listing of the restaurants starred in the Michelin Guide New York:

Daniel: 60 E 65th St, tel. (212) 288-0033
