With the new year creeping up, it’s only fitting that the culinary scene ramps up the latest offerings.
This week, the infamous culinary guide released their list of the most anticipated restaurant openings from MICHELIN chefs in 2024. Unsurprisingly, six are on the list slated to open in NYC!
Here are the six highly anticipated Michelin star restaurants coming to NYC in 2024:Amado Grill
New York hit-maker Ignacio Mattos (Estela) will go the fine dining tasting menu route with Amado Grill, located within the Lower East Side’s chic Nine Orchard hotel between Corner Bar and The Swan Room. Pressed white linens and porcelain set the cozy 38-seat restaurant’s tone, where Mattos will serve a four-course menu for $125 within a 750-square-foot cornflower blue-hued space. Expect a more refined menu that the chef serves at his next-door restaurant, though one that’s hinged on seafood and charcoal-kissed preps such as squab à l’orange with Belgian endive and quince.
📅 Estimated Opening: February 2024COQODAQ
Simon Kim, the commander behind One MICHELIN Star Cote Korean Steakhouse, is gearing up to debut his second concept centered around fried chicken. Just a throw from his Flatiron Korean barbecue hit, he promises that the Rockwell Group-designed restaurant and bar—which blends traditional Korean patterns and art nouveau touches—will be a family-friendly, contemporary space outfitted with communal dining tables plus banquette seating. Cote’s former corporate chef, Seung Kyu Kim, is responsible for rejiggering classic American dishes with Korean touches.
📅 Opening: January 12, 2024
Kuma Hospitality Group, the team behind places like Tribeca’s One MICHELIN Starred French-Japanese tasting menu l’abeille and Sushi Ichimura, have joined forces with beloved kaiseki chef Chikara Sono of the shuttered MICHELIN Starred Kyo Ya. Fans of the lauded East Village restaurant will be delighted to know that 10-counter seat Kappo Sono will not be a huge departure and will embrace the same style of traditional kaiseki dining as the chef was known for in the past.
📅 Estimated Opening: Second half of 2024
Chase Sinzer and chef Joshua Pinsky, the duo behind one of the city’s hottest restaurants, Claud, will open an 11,400-square-footraw bar named Penny just above in the East Village. They’re working again with Edsel on the casual seafood spot’s aesthetic, which they describe as “warm modernism.” Think primarily of counter seats and a focus on sterling seafood—including crudos, plateaus, and even a few cooked shellfish dishes. Sinzer has earned street cred for this exceptional small-producer wine list at Claud, and guests can expect a similar ethos focusing on Champagnes and whites.
📅 Estimated Opening: Spring 2024
In 2017, husband and wife/chef team Scott Tacinelli and Angie Rito debuted their perpetually-packed Italian-American staple Don Angie, which is one of the most in-demand reservations in New York City. And they’ll launch the hotly anticipated 55-seat San Sabino directly next door in January. Continuing the Italian-American theme, San Sabino will lean into seafood preps and house-made pastas, such as black garlic-laced Lobster Casonsei in a white vodka sauce and Shrimp Parm in a sweet and sour arrabbiata, accented with Thai basil.
📅 Estimated Opening: January 2024
Chef Isao Yamada—trained at Kyoto’s globally acclaimed Kitcho before moving to the US and helming David Bouley’s Brushstroke—will open a namesake 12-seat omakase counter this winter in Chinatown. A collaborative project with Kooth Hospitality, Yamada joins the dining group’s two other lauded Japanese restaurants, Kono and Nakaji, in Canal Arcade just off Bowery. Expect a seasonal 10-course, $300 kaiseki meal that incorporates Western ingredients such as golden osetra caviar and foie gras, the latter of which he weaves into a steamed egg custard with lobster.
