Michael Schlow (an F&W Best New Chef 1996) keeps busy with two locations of his inexpensive Italian spot Alta Strada. But he can often still be found in the kitchen at his first Boston restaurant, in the Financial District, preparing creative French dishes accented with Asian touches, like tamarind-glazed duck breasts.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

Even as he pursues projects outside of Boston, such as <strong>Alta Strada</strong> in Wellesley, Massachusetts, <a href="/bestnewchefs/?year=1996&chef=49B93804-0E35-47BE-BDA0619183A49A30">Michael Schlow (an F&W Best New Chef 1996)</a> has maintained his popular Financial District restaurant. In the convivial round dining room, Schlow serves inventive French dishes spiked with Asian ingredients like Sichuan peppercorns.

We loved: Tasmanian sweet crab with spicy cherry salad and (flying fish roe).
