In the French-inspired Greenpoint omakase spot, which opened in May, Chef Yuu Shiman offers the 18-course $250 tasting menu. With a star now, reservations will be hard to come by.
Most other Brooklyn Michelin picks retained their status. Prospect Heights' Oxalis kept its single star but is relocating. Its space will become a cafe, while Oxalis will move nearby. Brooklyn Heights’s Clover Hill and Williamsburg's Four Horsemen and Francie also held one-star rankings. One star denotes “high quality cooking worth a stop,” per Michelin.
Brooklyn's only two-starred restaurant, Aska in Williamsburg, maintained its “excellent cooking worth a detour” honor for a sixth consecutive year.
No Brooklyn restaurants were awarded the top three-star “exceptional cuisine worth a special journey” designation.
