Newspaper slams Michelin's NYC guide

Nov. 7, 2005 at 1:35 PM

NEW YORK, Nov. 7 (UPI) -- Michelin's new, first-ever guide to New York City restaurants and hotels is being slammed by the New York Post for inaccuracies and factual errors.

The criticism begins with the newspaper stating the underground trains are called the "Subway," not the "Metro," as it's called in the $16.95, 480-page guide.

On reviewing one restaurant, the guide said: "Barbaluc won't break the bank."

The newspaper agreed, as the eatery is closed.

The Post also went on to dispute the write-up on the Four Seasons restaurant, which has not featured art by Joan Miro for 10 years or by Jackson Pollock for decades. The paper said Michelin apparently got the idea from a 1960s review on the restaurant's Web site.
