The white, fluffy tire-man of a food critic has made his picks, and next year, he’ll be saving like the rest of us. The 2010 Michelin Guide to New York City Restaurants went on sale Tuesday, and the new edition features a list of great NY cheap eats in addition to the usual high-quality star-rated destinations. The recession-themed  “Bib Gourmand” list includes 85 restaurants with the Michelin inspectors’ rating for good value (two courses and a glass of wine or dessert for $40 or less). Brooklyn naturally makes a great showing in the category, with 17 “value” spots from Bensonhurst to Williamsburg. Here’s the full list of Bib Gourmand-rated eateries in the borough.
