Le Bernardin. Chef Eric Ripert. The Selby.
Stoked to see French Chef Eric Ripert featured on The Selby. His restaurant, Le Bernardin in NYC, is ranked among the best in the world, and holds the max rating of 4 stars from the NY Times and 3 Michelin stars. As a regular guest on Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations, and guest judge on Top Chef, Eric Ripert has become somewhat of a 'celebrity chef'. While Ripert's cooking is not exactly my cuppa tea, his menu is thoughtful, food is beautiful, and I appreciate the fact that he uses quality local, seasonal ingredients, showing his respect for food.
