August 2021: Where the Chefs Eat
Politicians, sports figures and reality-show housewives may get most of the headlines, but in New Jersey, the chefs are the true superstars. These are the skilled individuals whom we trust to transform our precious nights of dining out into special experiences.
But what about the chefs themselves? Where do they go to excite their discerning palates? Where do they seek inspiration, fresh ideas and fresh taste combinations?
Those were the riddles Eric Levin, our deputy editor/dining editor, sought to solve when he dished with 26 top New Jersey chefs about their favorite haunts and culinary cravings. And what did he find? These mavens’ raves ranged from fine dining to funky eats, from exotic international cuisine to pizza—lots of pizza. Their recommended restaurants are worthy of any Garden State foodie’s must-dine list.
