Bon Appetit: 20 Best Restaurants in the U.S.

20th February 2013

cover_bonap_135Have you seen the most recent issue of Bon Appetit? Andrew Knowlton ranks the “Top 20 Most Important Restaurants in the U.S.”

First and foremost, I think this ranking is an impossible feat. How on earth could you narrow down your favorites from across the country? Maybe one or two cities?

I am proud to say I’ve eaten at 8 of the 20 restaurants on Andrew’s list. Of those, my personal favorites on the list are Roberta’s in Brooklyn, Cochon in New Orleans and Animal in Los Angeles.

It’s also awesome that Bon Appetit had each of the chef’s make a list of their own favorite restaurants. i think it’s hilarious that David Chang picked the Cheesecake Factory, and I love that Sean Brock of Husk picked Blue Hill Stone Barns.

So, what would be on your list? I’m just starting to think about mine. Stay tuned…
