It's No Myth - Food & Wine's Best New Chefs of 2007

It's No Myth - Food & Wine's Best New Chefs of 2007

In today's paper, I read that one of San Franciso's chefs was named one of Food & Wine Magazine's Best New Chefs. Sean O'Brien, of Myth, joined nine other chefs in the 2007 honor. After working many years at Gary Danko, O'Brien launched Myth in 2004. Known for its stylish entrees (like rigatoni with foie gras cream), one could say that Myth is known for its romantic and dramatic atmosphere.

I personally have never eaten at Myth (although I love the mac n' cheese, homemade oreos and bag lunches at Cafe Myth - the cheaper lunchtime option), but considering this news, and the fact that Myth also made the Top 100 Bay Area Restaurants list, I have a feeling it's going to take a while to get a reservation.

Here are the rest of the 2007's Food & Wine Magazine's Best New Chefs:

April Bloomfield - The Spotted Pig, New York, NY
Gabriel Bremer - Salts, Cambridge, MA
Steve Corry - Five Fifty-Five, Portland, ME
Matthew Dillon - Sitka & Spruce, Seattle, WA
Gavin Kaysen - El Bizcocho, San Diego, CA
Johnny Monis - Komi, Washington, DC
Gabriel Rucker - Le Pigeon, Portland, OR
Ian Schnoebelen - Iris, New Orleans, LA
Paul Virant - Vie, Western Springs, IL
Sean O'Brien - Myth, San Francisco, CA

I think I just added 10 new places to eat on to my list...

If you're interested, Food & Wine magazine has full bios and restaurant info for all of those on the list.
