Michelin has announced a month-long series of culinary events in New York in association with Chefs Club and Robert Parker Wine Advocate, featuring an exclusive line-up of Michelin-starred chefs from November 6 to November 20.

Recognized globally for excellence and quality, the MICHELIN Guide offers a selection of the best restaurants in each category of comfort and price. Michelin’s renowned one, two and three stars identify establishments serving the highest quality cuisine.

The series begins with the announcement of the 2019 MICHELIN Guide New York City selection on November 6 at the iconic Rainbow Room on the 65th floor of Rockefeller Center. (A limited number of tickets are available to the public.) The gala will include a tasting menu prepared by Gabriel Kreuther of his eponymous one-Michelin-starred restaurant, Emma Bengtsson of Aquavit, Melissa Rodriguez of Del Posto and David Shim of Cote

This limited-edition series will seat only 80 people at each of the 12 dinner events, and guests will enjoy a MICHELIN Guide experience with exclusive tasting menus, pairing the chefs’ dishes with some of the world’s top-rated wines reviewed by Robert Parker Wine Advocate’s team of wine experts.

“Our U.S. selection team is proud to recognize these restaurants for the high quality of their food,” says Gwendal Poullennec, international director of the MICHELIN Guide. “The Chefs Club series is a unique opportunity to showcase some of the best American chefs and their teams in New York for an exceptional culinary experience.”
