Congratulations to Dressler and Peter Luger on their Michilen Stars!
Remember when I went to Dressler?
Remember when I went to Peter Luger?
Sort of funny how they're across the street from each other. Not bad for a block in Williamsburg.
It's nice to know what one Michilen star tastes like. I think I would like to move on to two stars soon. Masa? Gordon Ramsay?
Oh, and the Spotted Pig got a star. I've been there. And Gotham Bar & Grill, I almost went there. But I'm not excited about their stars. I'm excited that Dressler, which I laud and recommend whenever I can, has received this honor and I'm also glad that a rugged yet famous steak house doesn't get overlooked by the big snobs because, holy cow, I still taste the bacon from 18 months ago.
What, exactly, is a Michelin Star, Brigham? And why should I care?
NY Times reports who got stars in New York this year.
Frank Bruni opines on the selections.
