 565 restaurants -- representing 46 types of cuisine -- and 54 Manhattan

     The results of the Michelin Guide New York City 2008 will be celebrated
 during a special panel discussion event at 7 p.m., Thurs., Oct. 11 at
 Borders Books & Music, Time Warner Center. Panelists will include Jean-Luc
 Naret, director of the Michelin Guide; Jay Cheshes, former restaurant
 critic at Gourmet; and Danyelle Freeman of restaurantgirl.com and
 restaurant critic at New York Daily News. The panel will be moderated by
 Dorothy Cann Hamilton, founder and CEO of the International Culinary
 Center.
     The Michelin Guide New York City 2008 again features the Bib Gourmand
 category, which indicates Michelin inspectors' favorites for good value.
 This year's Bib Gourmands include 52 restaurants that serve a menu with two
 dishes and a glass of wine or dessert for $40 or less. The restaurants
 awarded this distinction can be identified by a red pictogram depicting the
 head of Bibendum(R), the Michelin Man.
     The Michelin Guide New York City 2008 also includes 71 restaurants
 serving a meal (two dishes and a glass of wine or dessert) for $25 or less.
 In the selection, these establishments are indicated by the coins
 pictogram.
     As a result, nearly 22 percent of the Michelin Guide New York City
 selection is comprised of highly affordable restaurants. While the Michelin
 Guide is known around the world for its famous stars, these restaurants
 account for just five percent of the selection. With more than one million
 copies sold in approximately 100 countries, the Michelin Guide has always
 built its success on the diversity of its selection and especially on small
 establishments offering a high-quality dining experience at an affordable
 price, of which the best are included in the "Our inspectors' favorites for
 good value" category. Moreover, inclusion in the Michelin Guide is, in
 itself, synonymous with quality, since only the best establishments in each
 comfort and price category are selected.
     The Michelin Guide New York City 2008 includes a total of 42 "starred"
 restaurants, of which three have received three stars, six two stars and 33
 one star. To ensure a consistent selection, the same five criteria are used
 for awarding stars in all countries: product quality, preparation and
 flavors, the cuisine's personality, value for money and consistency.
     One star * means a very good restaurant in its category.
     Two stars ** mean excellent cooking, worth a detour.
     Three stars *** mean exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey.
     The presentation of each hotel and restaurant in the Michelin Guide New
 York City 2008 includes a description of the atmosphere, interior
 decoration, chef's background, etc. These descriptions are intended solely
 to provide readers with additional information about the establishment.
     Present in North America since late 2005, the Michelin Guide has two
 local editions: The Michelin Guide New York City, now in its third edition,
 and the Michelin Guide San Francisco, Bay Area & the Wine Country, of which
 a second edition will be in bookstores on Oct. 24. Two new North American
 guides will be published in November: the Michelin Guide Los Angeles 2008
 and the Michelin Guide Las Vegas 2008.
     In Europe, the collection currently comprises 17 Michelin Guides,
 including English-language versions of the Michelin Guide France and the
 Michelin Guide Paris. The Michelin Guide is also making its entry into Asia
 with the publication of the first edition of the Michelin Guide Tokyo 2008
 in November.
     Thanks to a rigorous selection process that is applied independently
 and consistently around the world, the Michelin Guide has become an
 international benchmark in gourmet dining. The selection is made by
 anonymous, professional inspectors who are Michelin employees and is based
 on the same working methods in all countries.
     The first guide in the 2008 collection to be released, the new Michelin
 Guide New York City 2008 goes on sale on Wed., Oct. 10 for $16.95.
 Langenscheidt Publishing Group, premier publisher of map, travel, and
 language brands, is the exclusive U.S. distributor of Michelin Maps and
 Guides. For more information, please visit www.langenscheidt.com/michelin.

 Angeles 2008 and Michelin Guide Las Vegas 2008 will complement the existing
 catalog of Michelin maps and guides, as well as Langenscheidt's own
 extensive catalog of leading U.S., international, and regional maps,

     As a result, nearly 22 percent of the Michelin Guide New York City
 selection is comprised of highly affordable restaurants. While the Michelin
 Guide is known around the world for its famous stars, these restaurants
 account for just five percent of the selection. With more than one million
 copies sold in approximately 100 countries, the Michelin Guide has always
 built its success on the diversity of its selection and especially on small
 establishments offering a high-quality dining experience at an affordable
 price, of which the best are included in the "Our inspectors' favorites for
 good value" category. Moreover, inclusion in the Michelin Guide is, in
 itself, synonymous with quality, since only the best establishments in each
 comfort and price category are selected.
     The Michelin Guide New York City 2008 includes a total of 42 "starred"
 restaurants, of which three have received three stars, six two stars and 33
 one star. To ensure a consistent selection, the same five criteria are used
 for awarding stars in all countries: product quality, preparation and
 flavors, the cuisine's personality, value for money and consistency.
     One star * means a very good restaurant in its category.
     Two stars ** mean excellent cooking, worth a detour.
     Three stars *** mean exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey.
     The presentation of each hotel and restaurant in the Michelin Guide New
 York City 2008 includes a description of the atmosphere, interior
 decoration, chef's background, etc. These descriptions are intended solely
 to provide readers with additional information about the establishment.
     Present in North America since late 2005, the Michelin Guide has two
 local editions: The Michelin Guide New York City, now in its third edition,
 and the Michelin Guide San Francisco, Bay Area & the Wine Country, of which
 a second edition will be in bookstores on Oct. 24. Two new North American
 guides will be published in November: the Michelin Guide Los Angeles 2008
 and the Michelin Guide Las Vegas 2008.
     In Europe, the collection currently comprises 17 Michelin Guides,
 including English-language versions of the Michelin Guide France and the
 Michelin Guide Paris. The Michelin Guide is also making its entry into Asia
 with the publication of the first edition of the Michelin Guide Tokyo 2008
 in November.
     Thanks to a rigorous selection process that is applied independently
 and consistently around the world, the Michelin Guide has become an
 international benchmark in gourmet dining. The selection is made by
 anonymous, professional inspectors who are Michelin employees and is based
 on the same working methods in all countries.
     The first guide in the 2008 collection to be released, the new Michelin
 Guide New York City 2008 goes on sale on Wed., Oct. 10 for $16.95.
 Langenscheidt Publishing Group, premier publisher of map, travel, and
 language brands, is the exclusive U.S. distributor of Michelin Maps and
 Guides. For more information, please visit www.langenscheidt.com/michelin.
 Available for the first time in November 2007, the Michelin Guide Los
 Angeles 2008 and Michelin Guide Las Vegas 2008 will complement the existing
 catalog of Michelin maps and guides, as well as Langenscheidt's own
 extensive catalog of leading U.S., international, and regional maps,
 guides, and atlases.
     For more than a century, Michelin Guides have helped travelers enjoy
 better mobility by offering qualified restaurant and hotel recommendations
 throughout Europe. Now representing 17 countries and two continents, the
 collection of 22 Michelin Guides includes more than 45,000 addresses. Its
 team of highly trained inspectors visits establishments anonymously,
 applying Michelin's international standards for quality across many
 categories. In North America, the company has introduced Michelin Guides
 for New York City and San Francisco, Bay Area & Wine Country, with plans to
 publish 2008 guides to Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Michelin has also
 announced that it will introduce the Michelin Guide to Tokyo, Japan. For
