Marinus at Bernardus Lodge
This indoor-outdoor restaurant is surrounded by vineyards. Try the organic carrot soup, served in a martini glass. Chef Cal Stamenov serves it with avocado, cilantro, carrot, and cumin-sprinkled crème fraîche. Or enjoy an elaborate seafood-focused tasting menu by the roaring fireplace.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
