You may ask why Michelin is launching a Michelin Guide for New York City in November 2005 ? and why it has taken us so long to do so. New York City is an international gourmet dining center, with many attractions and unique neighborhoods. It was impossible for us not to take an interest in the city. As a dining center, New York is now on par with cities such as London, Madrid and Paris. That's why we felt now was the best time to acknowledge the achievements and the talent of these people who are making New York an undisputed leader in fine hotels and restaurants. And whether by chance or coincidence, it was exactly 100 years ago, in 1905, that Michelin opened its first offices in the United States, at 132-142 West 27th Street, Madison Square. Key features: Approximately 500 restuarant and hotel selections Two restaurant listings per page Detailed descriptions for every establishment Receipes from chefs at star-rated restaurants Neighboorhood maps highlight the locations

Edouard Michelin, "A New York guide is part of an old dream of mine. It goes back 20 years. At first there was France, then Europe, but now there's the world, and New York is the gateway. New York makes you discover other cuisines."
"I've had some anxiety about how the guide will be perceived here," he said. "But I do not believe that there will be a negative attitude toward the guide, first of all because Michelin, as a company, has a reputation for being reliable."
Michelin first started publishing guidebooks in France 105 years ago, first giving travlers practical information like gas stations, emergencey services, hotels and maps. Restaurants were added in 1923. There are now red guides in 20 countries.
