In advance of the 2011 Michelin Guide, which will wreak havoc on the egos of New York chefs when it is released next Wednesday, the Michelin team has teased the full list of their "Bib Gourmand" restaurants, which they describe as "New York's tasty hidden gems." These spots don't get any of the coveted stars, but they're acknowledged for their general excellence as restaurants where you can get two courses and a glass of wine for under $40. The 91 honored restaurants contain 21 new additions from last year, including Northern Spy Food Co., Fatty 'Cue, Paulie Gee's, and Tanoreen. Read on for the complete list.
