Zagat just released its 2013 guide to New York City restaurants, and French cuisine dominated the top end of the rankings.There was no real surprise that Eric Ripert’s Le Bernardin had the top-rated food for the fourth year in a row.
More than 44,000 diners voted in Zagat’s New York restaurant survey this year.
See who took top honours in the food category.
Chef Galen Zamarra's restaurant provides a 'polished,' but 'warm' environment for diners as they gobble up his new-American cuisine. This place is one of the few non-French options on the list.
Zagat describes Jean Georges' 'heavenly' food as 'art on a plate.' If you're looking to experience Jean Georges at a cheaper price, head over during lunchtime for the pre-fixed $38 menu.
Eleven Madison Park may have changed ownership this year, but the dining experience under Chef (and now owner) Daniel Humm is as flawless as ever.
Daniel Boulud's 20-year-old Upper East Side joint is a classic. If you're looking for a less-formal meal, stay away from the price-fixed menu and head to the lounge for a la carte service.
Per Se is not for the faint of heart, with the pre-fixed menu running a whopping $295 a person, but the service and food makes 'the world class food worth the cost,' according to Zagat. The Central Park views and fancy dress code (jacket required) doesn't hurt the ambiance.
