Chef's Night Out

Andrew Dornenburg and Karen Page

James Beard Award-winning authors of Becoming a Chef, Culinary Artistry, and Dining Out

Who better to tell where to get the best pastrami sandwich in New York, or to find the best Creole restaurant in New Orleans, than a chef whose very livelihood depends on his taste buds?

With Chef's Night Out, James Beard Award-winning authors Andrew Dornenburg and Karen Page have created the first guide featuring the restaurant recommendations of 100 individual chefs, detailing the places to eat in New York, Los Angeles, San Fran-cisco, Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, Washington, DC, and 19 other American cities that best nourish their stomachs and imaginations.

Where do New York's top chefs go for the city's best brick-oven pizza? Or San Francisco's for the best dim sum? Where do chefs in Philadelphia agree you'll find the best coffee? Where do Boston's flock for amazing fried clams? And where do chefs across America believe is a must-stop in New Orleans? From insider chef hangouts to young restaurants flirting with success, you'll discover where many of America's most prominent chefs-including Mario Batali, Rick Bayless, Daniel Boulud, Marcel Desaulniers, Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken, Caprial Pence, Jacques Torres, Charlie Trotter, and Jean-Georges Vongerichten-love to eat on their nights (and days!) off.

Chef's Night Out is also a guide to top chefs' own restaurants, as they share tips on what to order and how best to enjoy the experience. In addition, the book takes a behind-the-scenes look at how to eat like a chef, as they regale us with stories of their "dining epiphanies" along with their secrets for developing one's palate, matching wine with food, ordering in ethnic restaurants, and more.

The ultimate insider's guide to dining out across America, Chef's Night Out is the food lover's bible to some of the best culinary treasures in the United States-as well as a source of inspiration and fresh ideas for culinary professionals.
