Tony Bourdain's favourite Chefs

hctupper | Nov 4, 2010 09:30 PM

I've just finished to read Anthony Bourdain's book, named as Confidential Kitchen.

Although he is very controversal guy, his book is very interesting. In his last charpiters, he wrote about his favourite chefs. As this book was written in 2000, I'd like to know if you still agree with his favourites chefs.

- Tom Colicchio (Ex Gramercy Tavern)
Today I think he runs many restaurants, but I suppose that his main restaurant is The Craft.

- Rocco DiSpirito (Ex Union Pacific Restaurant)
He has no restaurant at the moment. (At least I didn't find)

- Gray Kunz (Ex Lespinasse)
He moved for Honk Kong

-.Eric Ripert (Le Bernardin)

- David Bouley (Bouley Restaurant);

- Thomas Keller (Per Se, French Laundry)

- Palladin (Jean-Louis at Watergate)
He's already passed away

- Scott Brian (Ex Veritas)
Tony Bourdai wrote a charpiter where he describes that Brian is genius. Today he works in restaurant called Apiary.

Well, do you agree with this list. Were they the best of NYC in 2000? And do they continue as the best of NYC (Except Palladin)?
