Food & Wine just revealed the winners of its prestigious Best New Chefs in America award for 2016.
The list honours innovative chefs who have run a kitchen for five years or fewer.
Food & Wine’s editors took nominations from restaurant critics, food writers, and other experts before travelling incognito to test the chef’s food themselves.
Daniel Boulud, Thomas Keller, April Bloomfield, Tom Colicchio, and David Chang are among those who have won the award in the past.
Here, in alphabetical order, are the chefs to keep an eye on this year.
