Blue Hill at Stone Barns and Cosme Land on Bill Addison’s Best Restaurants in America List

New, 1 comment

Momofuku Noodle Bar and Roberta’s also make the cut this year

Today, Eater’s roving critic Bill Addison releases his list of the 38 Best Restaurants in America. This is the product of a year eating out in the greatest food towns and cities across the United States. Bill’s pick for "restaurant of the year" is a trailblazing fine dining establishment in Pocantico Hills, NY run by local hero Dan Barber. Here are some of Bill’s thoughts on the incomparable Blue Hill at Stone Barns:

Stone Barns isn't just an exquisite fine-dining restaurant serving magnificent tasting menus; it's an experiment, a laboratory, a learning center, and a model for the future of agriculture. The travel itself builds anticipation: on the train or in a car, the city falls away, mile after mile, until finally you turn down the farm's long, winding driveway, where the surrounding lushness tunes your mind and senses for the feast ahead.

Check out his long-form assessment of Blue Hill right here. Bill’s Best Restaurants in America list also shines the spotlight on Enrique Olvera’s chic Flatiron District Mexican establishment, Cosme, where the food is both forward-thinking and absolutely craveable. Here’s Bill’s take on that great restaurant:

Cosme heralds a new generation of outstanding upscale Mexican restaurants, gradually appearing around our nation, run by natives of Mexico (many of whom also own successful restaurants in their home country). Chef-owner Enrique Olvera and chef de cuisine Daniela Soto-Innes won over New York — and America — with triumphs like lush, crackly-skinned duck carnitas for two and their genius, already-iconic dessert, cornhusk meringue with silky corn mousse.

And for the third year in a row, hometown heroes Roberta’s and Momofuku Noodle Bar are included among the list of the most essential restaurants in America. Check out the whole thing here.
