for a gourmet adventure? How about 40 of them at our
top restaurant picks in the U.S.?
we've listed our selections by restaurant, we're highlighting
chefs because, to us, food always comes first. Of course
we are by no means ignoring the fine work that the restaurants'
managers, sommeliers and staffs contribute each night.
They were a component in our selection, for without
them no chef could succeed.
other great establishments did not make the list, and
we apologize for that. Simply put, these are the restaurants
that suit our tastes. Certainly we have prejudices,
as any gourmet does, and as that will always be the
case, we reserve the right to be subjective, as well
as honest and candid. Dining is an emotional endeavor,
after all, not a scientific process. So read on and
prepare to have your passions roused.
