Best Chefs

In a spare but welcoming 18-seat space, these chef-partners create magic with an 11-plate lineup that’s constantly morphing, changing at least twice each week. The food is, in a word, poetic. The carefully composed dishes look too good to eat — wondrous kaleidoscopes of color and texture. Their flavors explode in combinations that surprise or amaze. —Jon Palmer Claridge
