A Sad Day for the LES

October 8, 2007


Mr. Michelin Man shows no love for the LES. The 2008 Michelin Guide to NY came out today, and the Lower East Side didn’t fare too well. We’ve got ONE 1-star restaurant in the neighborhood—WD-50. And ZERO 2- or 3-star joints. Bummer. Michelin also included their Bib Gourmand section where inspectors picked their favorite restaurants for good value. There are 52 restaurants in this year’s guide that serve a menu with two dishes and a glass of wine or dessert for $40 or less. In this section, the LES also scored only one mention—Congee Village. Let’s do better next year LES!
