Where Chefs Eat: A Guide to Chefs' Favourite Restaurants


If you're new in town, where better to discover the newest, most dynamic, interesting and hidden dining addresses than straight from the lips of the tastemakers themselves?

In fact, if you had the chance to ask Rene Redzepi, Yotam Ottolenghi, Stephen Harris, Jason Atherton or Alex Atala where they'd choose to eat in your given destination, you'd take their tips over a standard restaurant guidebook any day, right!

That's the idea behind Where Chefs Eat, published by Phaidon. The all-new, completely revised third edition of the global restaurant guidebook.

This comprehensive portable dining companion should arm you with the best dining tips wherever you are, given that it lists over 3000 recommendations from an incredible 650 of the world’s best chefs, experts and editors in more than 570 cities in 66 countries and 6 continents.

Today's chefs are natural globetrotters and their passion for flavour usually mobilises them to the best places in town. So if you hit NYC, wouldn't you want to know that Daniel Humm's favourite bagels can be found at Black Seed Bagels or find out for yourself why Yottam Ottolenghi is obsessed with the dumplings at London's Imperial China or even where Virgilio Martinez would pull up a pew to eat in Lima? We know we would.

From local favourites and late-night hangouts to destination restaurants the chefs come up trumps with the "best tip-offs for places to eat breakfast, have a late-night snack, bargain meal or a once-in-a-lifetime menu." What's sure is with this invaluable travel companion you'll never go hungry away from home again and probably unearth a few dining gems along the way.
