The Year's Best Restaurant Chef

The Year's Best Restaurant Chef

For our Best of 2008 series, we asked you who you thought deserved the title of best restaurant chef of the year.

The votes for Masaharu Morimoto and Thomas Keller were neck and neck, but ultimately your pick was Thomas Keller.

We must, however, respectfully disagree and say that our pick for best restaurant chef is David Chang. Since David Chang opened his first Momofuku restaurant, the New York chef has skyrocketed to unexpected heights of celebrity chefdom.

We have always been fans of the talented young chef's unparalleled innovation in flavor and technique, and his ability to bring a dramatically different yet affordable type of comfort food to the masses. When we sat down with him at Slow Food Nation, we also fell for his self-deprecating humor and bad boy demeanor.

Have you been to one of Chang's Momofuku restaurants?

Oh, lord. I have dreams about many of DC's foods. I absolutely love Noodle Bar. Ssam, I wasn't so crazy about. And I am OBSESSED with the milk bar. The cereal milk is insanely addictive and the marshmallow cereal chocolate chip cookie!

I've been to Noodle Bar. It's fantastic. It's the dream restaurant I've always wanted to open. He just beat me to it! Can't wait to check out Ssam Bar.
