Michelin has released its picks for the 2018 Bib Gourmand award, a recognition designated to 127 restaurants this year where diners can eat quality food for a good value.

The restaurants, revealed on Oct. 23, include 15 in Queens, spanning neighborhoods like Long Island City, Astoria, Woodside, Elmhurst, Forest Hills, and Flushing.

Arharn Thai and the Greek Gregory’s 26 Corner Taverna, straddling the Long Island City/Astoria border, returned to the list this year, along with HinoMaru Ramen. Long Island City’s John Brown Smokehouse and Mu Ramen were also newly awarded the Bib Gourmand.

Three Elmhurst restaurants also returned to the list—the Thai Paet Rio, Sweet Yummy House serving Chinese food, and Uncle Zhou, known for its Henanese cuisine.

Flushing saw four restaurants return to the list, with one new restaurant added. the Korean Tong Sam Gyup Goo Yi, Hunan Kitchen, Hunan House, and Hahm Ji Back, the Korean barbecue restaurant, were all awarded once more. Dumpling Galaxy, which opened in 2014, was a new inductee to the list.

Casa Del Chef, the New American bistro in Woodside, received the Bib Gourmand designation once more, the only restaurant in the neighborhood. In Forest Hills, the Italian Il Poeta received the honor once more.

The Bib Gourmand awards are given out each year, and are handed to restaurants where diners can enjoy two courses and a glass of wine or dessert for $40 or less.

“Michelin inspectors have been eating their way around New York’s five boroughs for more than 13 years and every year they are inspired by the inventiveness and imagination of the city’s chefs,” said Michael Ellis, international director of the Michelin Guide, in a statement. “From Flushing to the Bronx, the Bib Gourmand restaurants represent 127 establishments where diners can enjoy quality ingredients, quality cooking and fair prices.”

The 2018 list of Michelin-starred restaurants for New York City will be released on Oct. 30.

Notice none are in Jackson Heights? Why is it that we don’t have Italian, Greek or American restaurants in this neighborhood? It’s outrageous.
