Wasn't he the drummer for "The Who"? ;-)

So far, from whose food I have tasted, Michael Chiarello.

Michael Symon, for me.  Representing my home town and helping to bring it back to life.

Plus... their wine list, composed by his wife, is not only economical- but frickin' jammin'.

Try the Crispy Chicken Livers with the soft Polenta.  Change ya life ;).

I love Rick Bayless... his is so passionate about his food and the regions of Mexico.

Michael Chiarello is good too... I used to love Tra Vigne restaurant back in the early 90's when he was chef there.  Michelangelo Pasta was one of my favs back then..

I also absolutely love Maria Helm Sinskey... she cooks with seasonal favorites here in CA.  Lots of fresh, local product.

Bayless has always impressed me, though in truth I've not always had the patience or the desire to watch his shows (throughout the years) in their entirety.  Still- I agree totally with Senior Bayless.

THIS would be another one...  We've yet to go, but we should.  Check out some of the dishes, particularly on the tasting menu.

We've been to Morimoto- which was a month worth of Sundays of awesome... but Mr. Dufresne warrants a visit too.

I mean.... come on...

"Everything bagel, smoked salmon threads, crispy cream cheese... Grüner Veltliner Sekt ‘Brut’ Szigiti NV (Austria)"

And that's just the bagel.

Morimoto?  You ask?

His tastingmenu was pricey, but I've never had a meal this good.  They even threw in a special surprise knowing it was out anniversary.

This, a past of fresh tuna tar tar with all kinds of things to "share" it with,, was the first of an eight course feast, paired with wines and sakis that defied even the highest of expectations...

So, there' Symon, Morimoto, and (a hopefully SOON) Defresne covered.

There are others that would parse those three out in my top five or so... but there ya go.

And I appologize for my horrid spelling.  I keep checking the weather... it is affecting my attention span.
