Matt Lightner of Castagna in Portland, Oregon, hit Corton. Lightner was so excited to meet Corton's outstanding chef, Paul Liebrandt (a BNC 2009), that as soon as he got his award at the Best New Chef party and got off stage, he went to find Liebrandt.
Roy Choi of L.A.'s Kogi left the BNC party to go to Momofuku Ssäm Bar. “I needed some soy sauce," he said. Not only did he load up on the iconic pork buns, he brought some to the after-party at Kenmare for his fellow winner James Syhabout (Commis, Oakland, CA).
Jonathon Sawyer of Greenhouse Tavern in Cleveland headed to Barbuto. Said Sawyer, "I had a slamming pasta chittarra alla carbonara, with peppered guanciale and Parmesan. And it didn't hurt to be eating with two legends like Jonathan Waxman [Barbuto's chef/owner] and Larry Forgione [the legendary American chef/owner of the now-gone An American Place].” Sawyer didn't stop there; in his short time in NYC, he also ate at Colicchio & Sons, The Spotted Pig, Má Pêche and Motorino. And took home some soppressata from Faccio's Pork Store.
