Table Hopping with Morris Gut
It has become an annual rite of the culinary world. The prestigious Michelin Restaurant Guides have been publishing their ratings internationally, nationally, in NYC, and for the third year, Westchester & suburbs.
The ‘Bib Gourmand’ designations (typically more casual eateries of merit), and Stars (high end restaurants), can be meaningful to a restaurant’s bottom line. Here are the local spots that made the list for 2022.
Some of the ‘Bibs’ restaurants include Dubrovnik, New Rochelle; Maria, New Rochelle; Tredici Social, Bronxville; Café Alaia, Scarsdale; Burrata, Eastchester; Badageoni Georgian Kitchen, Mt. Kisco; Shiraz Kitchen & Wine Bar, Elmsford; Rafele, Rye; and The Cookery, Dobbs Ferry. New additions this year: OKO, Rye; TVB by Pax Romana, White Plains; and La Casa, Bronxville. The only star recipient in Westchester was Blue Hill at Stone Barns. The full list can be found online: https://guide.michelin.com/en/us/new-york-state/restaurants
