Good News for foodies in the New York Suburbs! Westchester County just received its first Michelin star restaurant (actually two stars!) We no longer have to trek to New York City for our Michelin Star restaurant fix. Plus Michelin also announced that they have added Westchester County restaurants to their Bib Gourmand restaurants. A total of 9 Westchester restaurants were honored by the Michelin Guide and they are included in the 2020 Michelin Guide New York City and Westchester County. Here are the Michelin Restaurants in Westchester County.
The Only Michelin Starred Restaurant in Westchester County
Blue Hill at Stone Barns at 630 Bedford Road, Pocantico Hills, NY-(914) 366-9600
There is only one restaurant in Westchester County to receive the coveted Michelin Star. Joining the two-star ranks is Dan Barber’s lauded Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Pocantico Hills, New York. Barber’s onslaught of clever bites consists mostly of vegetables plucked from the property’s greenhouses and working farm. The kitchen serves excellent cuisine with a distinct personality in its stunning dining room that was formerly a dairy barn.
