Michelin launches new quick reference version of the guide

The  Staff Canteen
MICHELIN LOGOMichelin USA has launched a new series of premium maps for the cities they cover, in order to allow diners to quickly find the top-rated restaurants. The first map in the series, the "New York City Map of Great Places to Eat 2015," goes on sale today for $9.95 (£6.33), and versions for the other two American cities covered by the guides, San Francisco and Chicago, will be launched in the second week of January 2015. "Consider this new map a shortcut to the shortlist of Michelin-recommended restaurants," said Alice Searcy, director of marketing for Michelin Travel and Lifestyle in North America. "This product is designed to give busy residents, business travellers and tourists the quickest route plus vital tips and information on New York City's best restaurants. For the culinary enthusiast, it is one more great resource." The map for New York City uses an A-to-Z index to list the area’s Bib Gourmand and Michelin-Bibstarred restaurants in all five of the city's boroughs. The 126 Bib Gourmand restaurants have been selected by Michelin inspectors as the best restaurants that serve two courses and glass of wine or dessert for $40 or less. They are often the restaurants the inspectors frequent themselves. The 73 Michelin-starred restaurants, meanwhile, represent culinary excellence, and have been being judged for the food on the plate, the quality of the products, mastery of flavour and cooking, personality of the cuisine and overall consistency. The map also includes street addresses, cross streets and the nearest suggested subway stops. For more information, visit www.michelintravel.com
