A RESTAURANT GUIDE WITH A DIFFERENCE

Where Chefs Eat is a new international restaurant guide published by Phaidon Press. Unlike other guides, we didn’t ask critics or foodies to tell us their favourite places to eat, we asked the people who know food the best: over 400 of the world’s top chefs.

From bargain noodle joints to high-end restaurants; late-night haunts to all-day breakfasts; neighbourhood eateries to destination restaurants, Where Chefs Eat has more than 2,000 personal recommendations for where to eat around the globe.

Edited by food writer Joe Warwick, with entertaining reviews, quotes from the chefs and useful maps, Where Chefs Eat is the perfect guide for the culinary traveller.

HOW THE BOOK CAME ABOUT

Over the years the Phaidon food team have been lucky enough to make books with some of the world’s leading chefs. While doing so we observed that, when it comes to dining out, chefs go to extreme lengths in search of good food. In fact, chefs eat well or they don’t eat at all.

For a while we used this knowledge wherever we found ourselves in the world: we could count on Ferran Adrià to recommend the best tapas bars in Barcelona; René Redzepi always directed us towards Copenhagen’s finest places for breakfast; and Daniel Patterson never let us down when it came to finding a bargain bite in San Francisco.

But we weren’t alone in having direct access to top restaurant recommendations. Joe Warwick, food writer and co-founder of The World’s 50 Best Restaurant awards, did too. We met Joe at a food event and hatched a plan to collaborate and create something with what we realized was very privileged information. The something turned out to be Where Chefs Eat.
