I realize recommendation by Michelin has always been a contentious issue amongst foodies and chowhounders. However, to us out-of-town visitors, who rely on reference sources to direct them to previously untried foodie destinations. Information provided by Yelp, Zagat, Chowhound, Timeout or Michelin....is as good as any.
Question: Why is 'Craft' rated so highly amongst food guides, so popular and constantly referred to as one of NYC's top culinary destination? If the food is indeed so good then why is it not Michelin Star rated??!! If assuming Michelin is reliable for western style cuisine, does it mean that 'Craft' is over-rated for some unknown reason?!
