Now that the year is practically over (how did August creep up on me like that?) it’s time to assess the damage on my goal of dining at every Michelin-starred restaurant in New York. Luckily, I’ve been to a bunch of them previous to this year (and I decided I wasn’t going to repeat a restaurant if I’d been before), but I just counted and I still have 30 restaurants. THIRTY RESTAURANTS BEFORE DECEMBER 31st! It didn’t seem like a lot when I first finished counting, but in reality, it is a LOT of restaurants to cover before the end of the year.

My mom is here for the rest of the week and we’re knocking out as many as we can, but eating at these Michelin starred restaurants is definitely starting to make me feel AND LOOK like the Michelin man! I’m going to try to space out the dinners more, but would any of you lovely readers like to join me for dinner? We can discuss pop culture, our favorite restaurants, your pretty hair…anything! Here are the restaurants I haven’t visited yet:

In case you were wondering, SHO Shaun Hargett is going to be posted next Monday – my mom and I had lunch there earlier this week and we had a great time! A preview:


Okay, now that I’m reviewing the list again, it does seem like a lot of restaurants, but I’m ready for the challenge! Send me an e-mail (gracenotesnyc@gmail.com) if you think you want to spend two hours with me…IT WILL BE FUN, I SWEAR!

I’m looking forward to hearing more of your reviews. Last week, I took my wife to Veritas for her birthday and we both loved it. It is a small, cozy restaurant and it was very quiet for a Saturday night at 7pm. It is on the same block as Grammercy Tavern and I think the food is superior. I don’t know if you like wine, but their wine collection is impressive. I loved the meal from start to finish: the breads were fantastic and everything hit a high note. I liked it better than the two starred Gordon Ramsey at the London.
