Michelin New York City Restaurants & Hotels Guide 2009by Michelin Travel Publications
MICHELIN Guide New York City 2009 helps those eating in the Big Apple solve the New York City culinary paradox of corner diners and exquisite star-rated restaurants. Covering 565 recommended restaurants for all budgets and cuisines-including 100 new listings this year-the 2009 Red Guide is the ideal resource for both locals and visitors looking for that perfect spot. All establishments covered in the guide are recommended by Michelin's expert inspectors, so you can book reservations to any listing with confidence; you don't have to wade through confusing or mediocre reviews to try to determine which place is worth your time and money.
The MICHELIN Guide New York City follows a proven formula that has withstood the test of time. Michelin employs full-time local professional inspectors that work anonymously so they are treated the same as other diners. Michelin inspectors check back on previously reviewed establishments and the guide's content is updated accordingly. Starred restaurants are inspected several times a year. Since few culinary honors are as prestigious as a Michelin star rating, restaurants that earn them are sure to consistently offer a superior dining experience so they retain their star rating from year to year.
The guide describes ambience and cuisine for all entries, while restaurants that merit a Michelin star rating will also have a menu selection and color photos. For those with less than a three-star budget, a Bib Gourmand category includes the inspectors' favorite places to eat for under $40; that's about 80 restaurants in this year's guide.
In addition to top restaurants, the MICHELIN Red Guide also reviews places to stay, from budget todeluxe. The 2009 Guide features approximately 60 hotels, each held to the same high standards that have made Michelin famous for over a hundred years.

This book is an encyclopedia of the best NYC restaurants. I found the neighborhood clustering and detailed maps especially helpful. The usual Michelin starring of the best restaurants is very helpful to those familiar with their European series.
