You can vote for The People's Best New Chef of 2015 now through April 8th! Above you'll see an exquisite dish I enjoyed while dining at The Hive. For more about that visit, check out the entire meal here: The Hive 2014. Executive Chef Matthew McClure deserves the vote for the Midwest!!
I was fortunate enough to visit with Chef McClure on my visit to The Hive. I know all chefs can't make table visits to all of their patrons, so I'm extremely appreciative when I receive one! It was an unforgettable dinner for me!
In the Northwest and Pacific, give a vote to Portland, Oregon's Johanna Ware of Smallwares!
Smallwares was one of the first places I visited when I first moved to Portland, and Johanna's timely interview in the Willamette Week may have had something to do with that! I can see how she was a part of the Momofuku group in NYC!
The smoked potatoes on the brunch menu completely wowed me. I love what they're doing over there!
