The little red guidebook announced its “Bib Gourmand” picks for New York City last week, and this afternoon Michelin unveiled its star rankings for 2014. Brooklyn’s River Café, which previously had one star but was nearly destroyed by Hurricane Sandy eleven months ago, is not included in this year’s guide. Meanwhile, César Ramirez’s Chef’s Table at Brooklyn Fare remains the only restaurant in that borough with three stars. Gordon Ramsay at the London has dropped off the list completely, and newcomers Carbone, Aska, and the Musket Room have all climbed aboard. The entire constellation, straight ahead.

Some more notes: Drew Nieporent and Paul Liebrandt’s Corton, which closed in July after Liebrandt left, has also vanished. The Elm, where Liebrandt cooks now, may have been open for too short a time period for consideration.
Smith Street New American stalwart Saul, which is moving to the Brooklyn Museum, is off, while A Voce Columbus and A Voce Madison retained their stars, despite losing chef Missy Robbins earlier this year. Notable absences from the list include Empellón Cocina, Lafayette, Luksus, Mission Chinese Food, Montmartre, Pok Pok Ny, and Pearl & Ash. Upper West Side fine-dining restaurants Telepan and Lincoln, on the other hand, received one star each. Neither made last year’s guide.
