Michelin recently released its 2014 guide to New York City dining on a dime, offering suggestions for restaurants serving up good value. NY1's Valarie D'Elia filed the following report.

A heaping helping of star power recently appeared at Michelin's gala event to introduce its 2014 restaurant guide for New York – Michelin Stars, to be exact. A total of 67 were awarded this year out of a total of 930 restaurants recognized covering 61 different types of cuisine.

Seven of those restaurants earned the lofty three-star billing, designating exceptional cuisine, as dished out by celebrity chefs such as Daniel Boulud of Daniel and Eric Ripert of Le Bernardin.

In another galaxy altogether are more budget-oriented bites. The Bib Gourmand symbol recognizes meals for $40 or under, such as Miss Mamie's Spoonbread Too in Morningside Heights.

Whether the meals cost $40 or $400, the standards are basically the same as sniffed out by anonymous inspectors.

200 restaurants were singled out for serving up great eats for $25 or less. My Upper East Side neighborhood favorite, Nick's Pizza, is a repeat winner despite having to contend with a drop in business due to ongoing Second Avenue Subway construction.

"People around the world really respect the Michelin brand, the Michelin name, so we're honored to be a part of that and we're happy that people come back for us," says Danny Marquez, the manager of Nick's.

Other restaurants in the under-$25 category include the Meatball shop on the Lower East side and El Paso Taqueria in East Harlem.
