In the March issue of GQ, Alan Richman lists his "12 Most Outstanding Restaurants of 2014," including a handful of celebrated New York restaurants. Austin's Qui gets the top honor, but Carbone is not too far behind in the number four slot. Richman writes that the new one from Mario Carbone and Rich Torrisi "might be the best Italian-American restaurant of all time." He also notes: "Every cook working in every Little Italy in every American city should be required to eat here."
Dover, the new Carroll Gardens restaurant from Walker Stern and Joseph Ogrodnek, lands at number nine on Richman's list. The critic believes that the restaurant represents "the future of fine dining." And down at number 24 on the extended, online-only list is Ivan Ramen Slurp Shop inside Gotham West Market. Richman thinks that the "Ivan Ramen chain has come to the city where it belongs." The full list is now available online, in slideshow format.
