Michelin picks city’s best eats under $40

The Michelin Guide yesterday named 21 more eateries in New York as offering value for money, adding to a list that includes Momofuku Noodle Bar and the Fatty Crab.

Hecho en Dumbo, a Mexican restaurant on the Bowery, and Fatty ‘Cue, chef Zak Pelaccio’s Malaysian-inspired barbecue joint in Brooklyn, are among those to receive a Bib Gourmand, meaning they offer a good two-course meal and a glass of wine or a dessert for $40 or less.

“If you live in or if you visit New York, you need to know not only which restaurants are the world’s best, but which restaurants deliver the best value,” Jean-Luc Naret, director of the Michelin guides, said today in an e-mailed release.

The Bib Gourmand winners are named today as a prelude to publication next week of “Michelin Guide New York City 2011.” The winners of Michelin stars will be announced on Oct. 6.

Michelin is the world’s second-biggest tiremaker. It produced its first so-called Red Guide at the turn of the 20th century to encourage motoring. The guides are expanding internationally under Naret and now cover 23 countries.
