The Best New Chef nod from Food & Wine magazine is one of the most coveted distinctions in the food business, and this year not one but two New York chefs will receive that honor. And we're not even talking the Torrisi boys (they'll get theirs in due time).
As expected given Dana Cowin's hint yesterday, Aldea's George Mendes will be celebrated tonight at the Best New Chef gala, and so will Carlo Mirarchi, chef at renegade Brooklyn pizzeria and restaurant Roberta's. They've both more than earned the distinction, so a big congrats. To find out which chefs in other regions won, click over to the full list at Eater National.
