Venn Diagramming Zagat’s Top 50 With Michelin’s 57 Starred Restaurants

Venn Diagramming Zagat’s Top 50 With Michelin’s 57 Starred Restaurants

Earlier today when we asked Michelin man Jean-Luc Naret why Colicchio & Sons hadn’t been starred. Now get this: We’ve looked through the book and the restaurant isn’t even listed among the 716. Well, Colicchio did once say the Michelin ratings were all over the map! That said, Colicchio & Sons (a Times three-star, let's remember) also isn't in the top 50 in Zagat. On that much, both of the guides can agree, but on much else, they tend to diverge. Zagat just sent us its top 50 restaurants in the "Food" category, and we’ve compared them to Michelin’s 57 starred restaurants. Here’s where the guides agree and disagree.
