Food & Wine Best New Chef 2010 Jonathon Sawyer!
Every year Food & Wine magazine picks 10 chefs their judges believe to be the Best New Chef. Some of the previous winners have been Nate Appleman, Thomas Keller, Daniel Boulud and Tom Colicchio. Yesterday, Tuesday, they announced this years winners.
Well, one of those best new chefs is Chef Jonathon Sawyer of The Greenhouse Tavern in CLEVELAND. Cleveland Rocks (but I don’t want to live there), Cleveland Rocks, Cleveland Rocks, Clee-e-vela-a-nd R-o-cks! the place is right next door to (Iron) Chef Michael’s Symon’s Lola. I have yet to eat at his place, but he’s a great guy. I’ve watched him as mike Symon’s souse-chef on Iron Chef America, I watched the construction of The Greenhouse Tavern regularly, from afar, through both his website and his wife’s blog, Chef’s Widow, as well printed articles. And his restaurant is an eco-friendly, green restaurant using organic, local ingredients. The building is as innovative as his food. Cleveland is definitely a city to chow down on some great food. You laugh! The laughs on you if you’ve never been.
