Christmas has come early for several New York chefs. Michelin’s annual guide to New York City’s restaurants is set for release later this week, but Eater snagged a copy of the physical edition a couple of days ahead of schedule. Michelin confirms for Grub that the copy is legit, and it looks like there are a few surprises on this year’s list.

For starters, Bushwick pasta palace Faro has been upgraded from Bib Gourmand status to a star. Sushi Zo, Contra, Agern, and Günter Seeger NY are all newcomers on the list as well, and Fredrik Berselius’s revamped Aska debuts with two stars. Maybe the biggest outlier to make the cut this year is Harlem’s Sushi Inoue, a solid spot that’s almost been entirely off the critical radar.

As always, there are perceived snubs as well: notably Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s ABC Kitchen, Daniel Boulud’s DBGB, and Danny Meyer’s Untitled, as well as Daniel Rose’s Le Coucou, which has received universal praise from the city’s other critics. And, alas, some things never change: Del Posto, as ever, retains its one-star status.
