2011_10_ignacio.jpgIgnacio Mattos, the chef at Taavo Somer's new Brooklyn restaurant Isa, on New York as a gastronomic center: "...we're way behind in terms of food. Stockholm and Sweden and Copenhagen are ahead of us. Japan is unbelievable. Lots of people are having a fresher and more committed approach to food at this moment more than in New York. It's important that people start to realize that. France is great. Sweden is great. Rather than hot dogs and pizza, they're doing great food." [FitR]
