Breakout Chef of the Year Dave Beran

Who better to win Breakout Chef of the Year than the toque behind Restaurant of the Year? After years working alongside chef Grant Achatz, Dave Beran was finally given the reins with Next, allowed to flex his creative culinary muscles via perfecting Paris 1906, taking on Thai, channeling childhood memories and paying tribute to legendary restaurant El Bulli. Following unparalleled attention for both Alinea’s achievements and his own health obstacles, Achatz seems happy to share the limelight—not to mention the pressure and responsibilities—with Beran, and so far the protégé has exceeded expectations. 953 W Fulton Mkt.

Other nominees Johnny Anderes (Telegraph), Bryce Caron (pastry chef, Blackbird), Dan Pancake and Beth Partridge (Autre Monde), Amanda Rockman (pastry chef, the Bristol)
