Csar Ramirez is a former David Bouley understudy who turned up on a characterless Brooklyn corner, serving rich food to rich people in a grocery-store kitchen. This unlikely locale, annex to the Brooklyn Fare supermarket also serves one luxurious, daily-changing, 15-course meal to diners perched on stools around a stainless-steel prep table each night. It’s not a restaurant, really—a dinner party’s more like it, served five nights a week in a chef’s atelier.
No doubt about it, NYC is a foodie town. Not only do our hole-in-the-walls and bodegas whip up some super satisfying cheap eats, but our fine dining restaurants are some of the best on the planet.

Below is the list of those who made the cut for 2019.
