Michelin has released its annual ranking of New York restaurants, announcing which were deemed worthy of its coveted stars. The biggest news, by far, is that Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s flagship, Jean Georges, has been demoted from three stars to two.

Sushi Ginza Onodera is also in the two-star category, however, its owners are likely a little happier about that, since it marks an upgrade from last year’s one-star rating. A few new additions in the one-star category are the Clocktower, Cote, and the latest iteration of Rouge Tomate.

Here is the full list. Let the disagreements begin.
