It’s a big month for the release of lists of restaurants at which you likely cannot afford to eat! First, Michelin bestowed their stars upon the city’s elite dining experiences and now Zagat has released their annual ranking of the 50 best restaurants in New York City. Unsurprisingly, Le Bernardin tops the list yet again, setting a record seven years in the number one spot. David Bouley’s eponymous Tribeca restaurant earns the second place distinction, with Daniel Boulud’s namesake Daniel in the number three slot.
