Earning a spot in the Michelin Guide is a sure sign you’ve made it as a chef.

For the second year in a row, the New York edition of the world-famous Michelin Guide is out a few days earlier than expected.

According to Eater, which obtained the 2017 edition after spotting a copy of the guide on sale at McNally Jackson Books in Soho, the list included 10 new restaurants in the one-star category. The full guide comes out on Thursday.

A one-star rating is considered “a very good restaurant in its category,” two stars indicate “excellent cuisine” that is “worth a detour,” and three stars represent a restaurant that offers “exceptional cuisine” that is “worth a special journey.”

The six three-star restaurants from last year maintained their status, and Aska has been named the city’s best new restaurant.

Here are the rest of the results (* indicates a restaurant that is new to the list):
