The lucky eateries are Casa Enrique and M. Wells Steakhouse in Long Island City, Danny Brown Wine Bar and Kitchen in Forest Hills and Zabb Elee in Jackson Heights. Getting one Michelin star indicates “a very good restaurant in its category, offering cuisine prepared to a consistently high standard,” according to the official Michelin website.
