San Francisco is This Year's Michelin Winner

Underline Image
New York City, meanwhile, saw one of its iconic restaurants drop from the top.
By Danny Klein October 2017 Chef Profiles

The 2018 Michelin Guide wasn’t kind to New York City this year. Jean-Georges was downgraded to two stars from three, more than 10 years after it rose to the distinction. It was the first time since the Guide made its U.S. debut in 2005 that the restaurant didn't receive three stars. The Big Apple had 65 one-starred restaurants included, but less three-star eateries (five) than the San Fransico Bay area (seven). Chicago had two. It also featured 72 total restaurants, down from 77 last year.

Below is the guide by city.
