Michelin releases 126 New York City restaurants rated best value for the money

We all know it's expensive to eat out, especially here in New York City. But where can you get the best value for your dollar in the five boroughs?

We all know it's expensive to eat out, especially here in New York City.

But where can you get the best value for your dollar in the five boroughs?

Michelin released their "Bib Gourmand" awards yesterday, their list of restaurants that offer the best value for the money in New York. And this year, a record 126 restaurants made the list.

The list of establishments that provide two courses and a glass of wine for $40 or less (plus tax and gratuity) is up from 114 last year and spans 31 cuisines, Michelin said yesterday in an e-mailed release. The value-for-money accolade is known as a Bib Gourmand.

The winners were named a week before the planned release of “Michelin Guide New York City 2013,” which will include establishments that have been awarded stars. The U.K. and Ireland guide is scheduled for Oct. 4.

Chef David Chang’s Momofuku Noodle Bar and Momofuku Ssam Bar remain on the Bib Gourmand list. Battersby, a casual venue in Brooklyn, is a newcomer to the list.

Battersby’s chef-owners Joseph Ogrodnek and Walker Stern previously worked together at Alain Ducasse at the Essex House after graduating from the Culinary Institute of America in 2002.

Michelin, the world’s second-biggest tiremaker, produced its first guide in 1900. It was distributed free of charge until 1920 and intended for chauffeurs. The guide contained practical information, including street maps and tips on repairing tires. The company is based in Clermont-Ferrand, France.
