Tom: Tuesday Dinner
Celebrity chef Tom Colicchio, a regular Top Chef judge, has introduced an innovative dining concept to the private room of his New York City restaurant, Craft. Every other Tuesday, Colicchio prepares a 10-course tasting menu for 32 diners, utilizing fresh market finds to fuel his culinary creativity. Past offerings have included peekytoe crab with sea urchin fondue and corned wagyu beef with mustard consommé. Wine pairings are available for an additional charge, and reservations are a must, as this unique dining experience is in high demand.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List
Sisters Ada and Ebe Concaro's cooking has been the standard-bearer of Argentinean cuisine for the past 35 years, and along with Ada's son Federico Fialayre, they're still inspiring new generations of chefs at their formal restaurant in the Hotel Panamericano. The meat dishes are exemplary, prepared with ingredients like water buffalo from the Entre Rios province, Patagonian lamb and suckling pig. The dining room overlooks one of the world's widest avenues, 9 de Julio.
We loved: Roasted quails with plum sauce and black currants.
Insider tip: A tasting menu is available by request one week in advance.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
