Nearly 20 Queens eateries have made the prestigious Michelin’s affordable restaurant list this year, including seven for the first time.

The Michelin “Bib Gourmand” guide lists city restaurants with distinguished cuisines at more affordable prices than the better-known Michelin star-receiving establishments.

The 2021 list was unveiled Wednesday and includes 131 restaurants offering a variety of cuisines across the five boroughs – including in 18 in Queens.

Seven Queens eateries made the list this year for the first time ever. Two restaurants in Jackson Heights — a vegetarian Indian restaurant called Angel and a Tibetan restaurant called Phayul — are newcomers, as well as a Sichuan restaurant in Long Island City, an Italian restaurant in Astoria and a Peruvian restaurant in Richmond Hill among others.

Neighborhoods like Long Island City, Astoria, Elmhurst, Jackson Heights and Murray Hill had multiple restaurants each that made the list.

True to Queens’ namesake as the World’s Borough, the eateries offer a diverse sampling of different cultures, with everything from Sichuan to Greek to Peruvian to Tibetan.
