This Brooklyn restaurant simply earned its first Michelin star
BROOKLYN, NY – A Williamsburg restaurant earned its first Michelin star, the only Brooklyn restaurant to be named to the coveted 2021 Guide List.
Francie, on the corner of Broadway and Bedford Avenue, is one of seven new Michelin-starred restaurants in New York City. All seven new restaurants received the one-star award.
“New York-born chef Chris Cipollone is making a splash with Francie, which is housed in an old but stunning limestone-clad building,” wrote the reviewers. “Named for the main character in a Betty Smith novel, sleek ash wood floors with a tile mosaic in the center, widely spaced tables, and a clean, modern mid-century vibe make this calm, elegant oasis unforgettable.”
The guide also praised the “soufflé cake with caviar-coated algae butter, which is full of umami taste”, the “chewy rigatoni with sweet Calabrian pumpkin and spicy Italian sausage” and a “perfect cream puff filled with soft maple and strong”. Bourbon.”
Here are the six other New York City restaurants that earned their first Michelin star on Thursday:
- Tsukimi: East Village
- Rezdôra: Flatiron
- Jua: Flatiron
- Sacristy: SoHo / HudsonSquare
- Kochi: Hell kitchen
- France: Williamsburg
The five New York restaurants with three Michelin stars from the 2019 Guide kept their top ratings – with no new restaurants joining the elite group. These restaurants are Chef’s Table at Brooklyn Fare, Eleven Park Madison, Le Bernardin, Masa, and Per Se.
