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.From the Author:
Town and Country, November 2005, Frank Bruni, the New York Times restaurant critic thinks Michelin will compliment the city's exisiting food and accomodation coverage by adding a knowledgeable...point of view: "Zagat is more of a restaurant goers' popularity contest. And Michelin's reviewing process is different from that of newspapers, which publish the voice of a single critic. Michelin's committee of professional inspectors rates restaurants, so its reviews are more dispassionate and remote, and it offers another kind of utility to readers"
